ASHEBORO N.C. – The Randolph County Sheriff’s Office and the Moore County Sheriff’s Office used a K9 to locate and arrest a wanted suspect in Seagrove last week.
On February 2nd, 2022, the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division Detectives and Criminal Interdiction Team responded to Little Brook Rd. in Seagrove after receiving a request to assist the Moore County Sheriff’s Office in locating Corey Tyler Hussey. Hussey was wanted on several outstanding warrants by both agencies, which had been working together on several cases involving Hussey who was accused of committing larcenies in both counties.
A K9 was used in order to track Hussey who was found in thick briars near a mowed path. Hussey was taken into custody and searched. Police say they found methamphetamine, paraphernalia and a handgun along with the remnants of a burnt GPS monitor belonging to Hussey’s bondsman nearby. Due to their warrants for an earlier vehicle chase, the Moore County Sheriff’s Office took Hussey to the Moore County Jail. After being processed there Hussey served with warrants by the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office for Felony Possession of Firearm by Felon, Felony Possession of Methamphetamine, Misdemeanor Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Misdemeanor Injury to Personal Property.
