ALBEMARLE, NC (WBTV) -

The Anson County Sheriff says a third man has been arrested after a home invasion in Charlotte turned into a carjacking and ended in a police chase through Stanly and Anson counties last week.

Deputies, along with officers with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department's Violent Crimes Taskforce, arrested Edward Hudson from Morven around 8:00 Tuesday morning without incident, according to Sheriff Tommy Allen.

Hudson is the third man arrested in the past week following the crime spree. Robert Lamarr Smith was arrested on Monday, according to the Cabarrus County Sheriff's Office.

A third man, 30-year-old Jarvis Terez Marsh, was arrested last week after he crashed a vehicle outside the town of Norwood.

Investigators say two men broke into a home in Charlotte and then took off to Midland, in Cabarrus County, where they reportedly were involved in a home invasion and assault.

At the mobile home park in Midland, a homeowner started his truck then went back inside his trailer. When he came back outside, there was a man standing there pointing a gun at him, WBTV learned.

The gunman came inside, tied up the homeowner and his 92-year-old mother and beat them before stealing the man's truck and two guns.

The manhunt led to the lock down of Anson Middle School. 

Deputies say they two men took off in that stolen black truck from Midland.  A deputy recognized the stolen truck south of Albemarle a short time later. He attempted to stop the truck but the men took off down the highway.

A short time later, deputies saw a man, later identified as Marsh, walking across a field near Stony Gap Road and the Stanly County Fairgrounds. When they tried to arrest Marsh, he pulled out a firearm and began firing at law enforcement officers, according to the report.

He then reportedly jumped in a police cruiser and took off down Highway 52. During the escape, he fired shots at a second deputy. Marsh refused to stop and was only taken into custody when he crashed the vehicle outside the town of Norwood.

He was taken to an area hospital for treatment of several gunshot wounds from his earlier gun battle with deputies.
