Police charge Salisbury man with drug possession again

Four days after police charged a Salisbury man with drug possession following a domestic disturbance at a Sunset Drive home, officers were called back to the home.
On Monday Salisbury Police charged Mark Jeffrey Shrader Jr., 33, of the 100 block of Sunset Drive, with felony possession of a controlled substance schedule I.
Officials said his fiancee posted his $10,000 secured bond on Friday and he was released from the Rowan County Detention Center. Police were called to the home Monday in reference issues at the home.
Shrader wrecked his truck not far from the home. A report said he was found with a handgun and drugs were found on him.
The first incident occurred Thursday when police were called to the home for a domestic disturbance in which Shrader’s fiancee accidentally fired a handgun into the grass during an argument the couple were having. She’d been checking the gun to see if it were safe to travel with. The gun jammed and went off, the woman told police. Witnesses also said it was an accident.
She’d placed the gun in the U-haul they were packing up, the woman said.
Police searched the home at the time and found heroin, marijuana, a smoking device and used and unused syringes. There were five children inside the home.
Shrader was found not far away Thursday in the parking lot of a store on South Main Street. He’d taken off in his truck.
Police also served warrants on Shrader for the charges he received during the first incident. The warrants were for felony possession of a firearm by a felon, misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia and felony fleeling to elude arrest.
He’d also been charged with the following regarding the first incident — misdmeanor communicating threats, felony possession of a controlled substance with intent to manufacture a schedule VI and felony possession of a controlled substance schedule I.
