Suspect in Walgreens robbery faces more charges
By Shavonne Walker
A Salisbury man already facing robbery charges in two Walgreens in Spencer and Mount Airy has been charged with drug trafficking.
Jimmy McFadden Menius, Jr., 52, was charged with felony trafficking heroin opium, felony maintaining a dwelling place for controlled substances, felony possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver a controlled substance schedule IV, two counts of felony possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver a controlled substance schedule II, misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance schedule VI and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.
Early in July, Mount Airy Police began investigating an armed robbery at the Walgreens there. Menius had became a suspect in the Mount Airy case.
He had also been the suspect in two Walgreens robberies in Salisbury and Spencer in recent months. These robberies were similar, and Mount Airy made contact with the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division.
A week ago Rowan investigators, Mount Airy Police Department and Wytheville, Va., Police served warrants at Menius’ Long Ferry Road home where they found pills and clothing items that tied him to these pharmacy robberies.
Menius remains in the Rowan County Detention Center under a total $250,000 secured bond.
