ASHEBORO — On Jan. 16, a deputy with the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office spotted a 2006 Dodge Ram that matched the description of a stolen vehicle. The deputy turned on his blue lights and the driver sped off. The driver lost control of the truck, hit a culvert and crashed through a chain link fence on the Southmont Elementary School property. The school was placed on lockdown after students and teachers saw the incident and the driver attempted to gain entry at the school. According to the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office, the subject, Larry Brian Hoover, 43, of Asheboro, is charged with multiple felonies, including felony larceny, and with a misdemeanor for attempting to enter the school.
