On September 26, 2023, the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office responded to US HWY 64 E. to a larceny that had already occurred at Farm Systems Inc.  The victim stated that Andrew James Denton had been to the store on three occasions, made several purchases, and opened a charge account.  He made multiple purchases on credit and used a check to pay for some items.  Their bank later advised that the check was declined due to insufficient funds.  The victim was able to provide a list of items from the transactions.  

During the investigation, deputies were able to locate and recover items that had already been pawned and return them to the business.  

On September 28, 2023, the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office received a tip regarding the location of Andrew James Denton, a wanted subject.  Deputies located the vehicle in which he was traveling on US Hwy 64 (bypass) and initiated a traffic stop, but Denton refused to stop and a vehicle pursuit ensued.  The pursuit continued west on US 64 Bypass to Zoo Parkway where he crossed the median to go back west on US 64 Bypass.  The driver continued west on US 64 Bypass onto NC Hwy 49 S. where he lost control and collided with another vehicle, which had already moved outside of the roadway in order to try to avoid the collision.

As the suspect vehicle came to a stop, Denton exited the vehicle and began running west into the woods but was quickly apprehended. EMS and Fire responded to the scene and evaluated all patients on scene.  NCSHP responded to investigate the accident.

During a subsequent search of the vehicle, deputies observed that the displayed North Carolina registration plate had been altered.  They also located paraphernalia and an item related to a fraud case under investigation.
