On December 31, 2021, the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office Electronic House Arrest (EHA) Officers received information that Marco Antonio Arzamendia had removed his monitoring device and discarded it in the area of Ready Mart #4 on Salisbury St. in Asheboro; the equipment was recovered.
Arzamendia was placed on EHA with Randolph County Sheriff's Office on April 6, 2020, for multiple charges including felony statutory rape of a child under the age of 15, financial card fraud and narcotics charges.
On January 3, 2022, an Order for Arrest was issued for Arzamendia for Violation of Electronic House Arrest. EHA Officers were able to track Arzamendia to New York where he is originally from and partnered with law enforcement in that area in an attempt to locate him. Continued efforts to locate him had been unfruitful.
On March 19, 2022, Arzamendia was located and arrested by the Wilmington Police Department, NC, in their jurisdiction. He was transported to the New Hanover County Detention Center where he was charged with resisting a public officer and carrying a concealed gun.
He was also served the outstanding order from Randolph County and issued a $200,000 secured bond and a court date was set for May 4, 2022, in Randolph County Superior Court.
