A wreck in Anson County ended a multi-county chase that started with a home invasion in Midland.

A suspect, Jarvis Terez Marsh, 30, of Morven, is in custody with charges pending. He is considered a wanted person for parole violations in North Carolina.

According to a press release from Stanly County, it began with an armed robbery in Charlotte and continued with the home invasion. About 3 a.m Wednesday, Stanly County Sheriff’s Office helped Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office with a canine search for the suspect in the home invasion.

At 7 a.m., the report says, a victim in the Midland area was carjacked and the vehicle was taken at gunpoint. At 7:20, a Stanly County deputy saw a vehicle matching the description. Two people were inside. The deputy tried to stop the vehicle, but it sped down U.S. 52 from the intersection of N.C. 24/27.

Shortly after that, a male was seen in an open field in the area south of Albemarle near Stony Gap Road and the Stanly County Fairgrounds. A deputy was looking for the subject when the subject fired a handgun, stole a vehicle and tried to flee. The subject then exchanged gunfire with a second deputy. The subject in the stolen vehicle was able to escape and got back on U.S. 52 traveling toward Norwood.

After a chase through Norwood, the stolen vehicle wrecked just inside Anson County on U.S. 52. The subject, though wounded by the confrontation with the deputy, was taken into custody and taken to Stanly County Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The second subject remains at large and was last seen in the area of Stony Gap Road and Highway 52 South, Albemarle. The subject is described as a black male wearing a blue button-up shirt and dark pants.

The State Bureau of Investigation is investigating the officer-involved shooting.

The Stanly County Sheriff’s Office, Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department are continuing their investigations into crimes committed in their jurisdictions.
