Law enforcement continues to search for one of two men who were part of a home invasion in Charlotte that led to a home invasion and carjacking in Midland and a police chase through Stanly and Anson counties.
Jarvis Terez Marsh, 30, was eventually arrested and taken into custody in Anson County after he stole an unmarked police SUV and later wrecked it, officials say. A second unidentified man remains at large despite efforts by officials to find him.
Late Wednesday night, the Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office released a photo from security video obtained at a convenience store where the unidentified man was seen withdrawing money from an ATM machine and making a purchase.
The two men were reportedly involved in a robbery in the University City area of Charlotte late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning. According to a press release from the Stanly County Sheriff’s Office, the Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office received and gained assistance from the Stanly County Sheriff’s Office in reference to a carjacking that took place at approximately 7:20 a.m. Wednesday.
Other reports indicate two men were involved in a home invasion where they assaulted two individuals, took a black pickup truck and headed toward Stanly County on N.C. 24-27. According to the sheriff’s office report, a Stanly County deputy later observed the stolen vehicle and attempted to stop it but was unable.
A short time later, Marsh was observed in an open field south of Albemarle near Stony Gap Road and the Stanly County Fairgrounds on U.S. 52 South. Video from Charlotte television stations had the reported stolen victim parked at the end of a dead-end road at the location.
Marsh exchanged gunfire with a second deputy and was able to get away after stealing an unmarked police cruiser parked nearby, setting off another chase, reports indicate. Sheriff Rick Burris said the car was locked, but that Marsh shot out a window to obtain entry. The chase continued through Norwood before Marsh wrecked the cruiser just inside Anson County.
Marsh was taken into custody and transported to a nearby hospital for non-life threatening injuries be-lieved to be at least one gunshot wound from the previous exchange.
The second unidentified person was last seen in the area of Stony Gap Road and U.S. 52 South. He is described as a black male wearing a blue button-up shirt and dark pants.
“I believe the guy is not around here anymore,” Burris said Thursday morning.
The State Bureau of Investigation is investigating the officer involved in the shooting. Stanly County Sheriff’s Office, Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office and Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department are continuing their investigations into the crimes committed in their jurisdictions.
Anyone with information is asked to notify the Stanly County Sheriff’s Office at (704) 986-3714.
