DURHAM, N.C. -

Durham police arrested two men Friday night in connection with a Jan. 20 armed home invasion on Cole Mill Road.

Police said Brandon Jayne, 35, and Joey Fabela, 35, both of Snowcrest Trail approached a resident of Cole Mill Road while they were taking out their garbage. The suspects were wearing masks and armed with guns, police said.

The suspects forced the victim into her house where she and one other resident were tied up, according to police. The suspects took items from the residence including jewelry, a cell phone and a white 2003 GMC Envoy.

Police said the GMC Envoy was later recovered on Sparger Road.

Investigators executed a search warrant on the residence of the suspects Friday night. Police said officers recovered jewelry and other items belonging to the victims. Police also recovered a sawed-off shotgun that had been reported stolen during a Jan. 8 burglary in Wake County and an AK-47 rifle.

Police said $400 in cash, marijuana, and a small amount of cocaine were also confiscated.

Jayne and Fabela were both charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, first-degree burglary, two counts of second-degree kidnapping, conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon, larceny of motor vehicle and possession of stolen property, police said.

Jayne was also charged with two counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, one count of possession of a weapon of mass destruction (a sawed-off shotgun) and one count of possession of a stolen firearm.

Jayne was placed in Durham County Jail under a $1.5 million bond and Fabela was placed in Durham County Jail under a $500,000 bond, according to Durham police.
