Convicted felon charged with having firearms

SALISBURY — A Rowan County deputy charged a Salisbury man Wednesday after officers said the man, a convicted felon, had rifles and a pistol in his home.
Deputy D.W. Dearth was called to 186 Beechwood Drive to check on the welfare of a child, according to a Sheriff’s Office report, but instead found weapons in the man’s closet.
Dearth reported that the child was OK and spoke to 22-year-old Cody Walser when he returned to the house on Feb. 18.
Walser told him that the rifles were in his closet and that he shot them “from time to time.”
Walser was released from prison after serving a six-month sentence for two counts of felony possession of marijuana.
Deputies spoke with the district attorney’s office and then charged Walser Wednesday with felony possession of a firearm by a felon.
He was released after posting a $2,000 bond.
