New charges for man in meth lab case

SALISBURY — James Timothy Russell, who was recently charged with running a methamphetamine lab — allegedly the second he’s operated in Rowan County in six months, the third in his lifetime — now faces four counts of felony larceny, breaking and entering a motor vehicle, misdemeanor larceny and conspiracy charges.
According to a report with the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office, once in custody, Russell was questioned about other crimes he may be involved in. He admitted to taking multiple motors from an abandoned sawmill at Earnhardt Lumber Co., three batteries from a tractor-trailer and an HVAC condensing unit and a battery from a 1986 Cadillac which was also parked on the property of Earnhardt Lumber Co.
Russell’s bond has now reached $1,325,000.
