Authorities bust meth lab at Salisbury home

Multiple law enforcement agencies served a search warrant Friday on a Salisbury home and discovered a meth lab inside. The man charged, officials say, was out on bond after Granite Quarry Police charged him with heroin possession.

Jared Anthony McManus, 31, of the 600 block of Candlewick Drive, was charged with one count of felony manufacturing a controlled substance schedule II, two counts of felony drug trafficking, three counts of felony possession of a precursor chemical and one count of misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

He remained in the Rowan County Detention Center on Monday under a $100,000 secured bond.

Authorities with the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office Special Investigations Unit and Special Response Team, the State Bureau of Investigation Clandestine Laboratory Response Team and the Salisbury Police responded to the home.

Investigators discovered a one-pot methamphetamine lab in the garage, along with 200 milliliters of meth oil and precursor materials used in the manufacturing of meth.

The Kannapolis Police Department also assisted in the investigation.

McManus was already out on a bond following an Aug. 15 arrest by the Granite Quarry-Faith Joint Police Authority in which he was charged with possession of heroin and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Officials found grinders, tubing and filters at the home as well as hydrochloric acid, lithium and pseudoephedrine.
