RANDOLPH COUNTY, N.C. (WGHP) — A man was arrested on Friday after a chase with deputies, according to a Randolph County Sheriff’s Office news release.
On April 20, the RCSO responded to West Main Street in Franklinville in reference to a 911 hang up.
An arriving deputy saw a dark blue SUV with two men inside the driveway. The deputy stepped out of his vehicle to speak with the men, but the driver accelerated through the grass while the deputy asked the driver to stop multiple times.
The deputy returned to his vehicle and caught up to the SUV going north on NC Highway 22N and tried to pull it over. When the SUV didn’t stop, deputies chased after it.
The SUV left Henley Country Road and entered a trail that the deputy couldn’t navigate due to the terrain.
Deputies established a perimeter around the area on Highway 64, Henley Country Road and Old Cedar Falls Road, but they couldn’t find the SUV.
During the investigation, deputies found the owner of the SUV who said she had allowed 36-year-old Jeffrey Dale Hogan to use it. They then obtained warrants for Hogan’s arrest.
On May 4, around 1:40 a.m., the RCSO responded to Grange Hall Road when they were told about a suspicious vehicle parked in a driveway.
When they arrived, deputies found the vehicle in question. Randolph Communications told deputies that the VIN number returned to a vehicle that had been reported stolen from the Burney Road area of Asheboro.
The property owner was able to identify the driver as Hogan and said he had been asked numerous times to not be on the property.
On Friday, deputies with the RCSO found Hogan in the McDermott Street area of Asheboro and initiated a traffic stop, but Hogan refused to stop. Deputies chased after the suspect onto US 220 Business South and Pisgah Covered Bridge Road.
