RANDOLPH COUNTY, N.C. — Randolph County Sheriff's Office said a man who led deputies on a chase that ended in a head-on crash Thursday had more than 30 combined warrants and orders for arrest in four counties. 

The RCSO Criminal Apprehension Team was watching 36-year-old Larry Dean Land, who investigators said was wanted for several crimes, including car thefts and break-ins. 

Deputies tried stopping Land on the new US Highway 64 in Asheboro, but said he didn't pull over. Officials then gave chase. 

In the area of exit 346, the ramp for the zoo connector, Land left the road, made a U-turn, and started driving in the wrong direction, according to the release. Deputies said Land crashed head-on with another vehicle. Those involved in the crash were taken to hospitals for treatment, and Land was arrested. 

The vehicle Land was in had been reported stolen and he was also found with a gun and a controlled substance, investigators said. 

Land had warrants and orders for arrest in Randolph, Davidson, Brunswick, and Guilford Counties. He's in Randolph County Jail where a magistrate issued him a $133,350 secured bond. More charges are forthcoming.
