Convicted Felon Pulls Gun In Argument, Flees When 911 Called

ASHEBORO N.C. – A convicted felon is back in jail after brandishing a gun during an argument before fleeing the scene when 911 was called.

On January 19, 2022, the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office responded to a family fight on Kerr Drive, in Randleman. When deputies arrived they were told that Phillip Andrew Hess had come to the house and an argument ensued. During that argument police say that Hess was told to leave and refused before brandishing a firearm and verbally threatening the residents. The victim told police that when they called 911 Hess dropped the handgun and fled on foot.

Responding deputies attempted to locate Hess but were unsuccessful. Deputies discovered that Hess is a convicted felon, and they collected the handgun as evidence. Police went to the Randolph County Magistrates Office and obtained a warrant for Hess for Felony Possession of Firearm by Felon.

On January 22, 2022, Hess was located by the Guilford County Sheriff’s Office and was arrested and transported to the Guilford County Detention Center where he was served the outstanding warrant and was issued a $5,000 secured bond. A court date was set for March 8, 2022, in Randolph County District Court.
