Authorities arrested one suspect and are still searching for another following a crime spree that spanned four counties yesterday.
Investigators say the pair are responsible for a home invasion and car theft late Tuesday night in Mecklenburg County. They were spotted in Cabarrus County near Midland around daybreak yesterday, but managed to elude deputies. The two allegedly stole another car after tying up a man and his mother inside their home.
Stanly County deputies say they saw the suspects heading toward Albemarle and attempted to arrest them near U.S. Hwy. 52 and the Stony Gap Rd., but the pair allegedly fled on foot across a field near the Stanly County Fairgrounds.
Officers reportedly exchanged gunfire with the suspects, one of whom was said to have then stolen a vehicle and headed south on U.S. Hwy. 52 toward Norwood.
30-year-old Jarvis Terez Marsh was arrested when he crashed the vehicle on Hwy. 52 just inside Anson County south of Norwood. Marsh is said to be an Anson County resident, and a fugitive who was also wanted for several parole violations. Marsh was taken to the hospital for treatment of gunshots wounds from his shootout with deputies.
At last report, the second suspect is still at large. He is described as a black male, wearing a blue button-up shirt and dark pants, last seen near the Stanly County Fairgrounds south of Albemarle. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to alert authorities by calling 911.
