SALISBURY — A Salisbury man wanted in connection with a meth lab at his Candlewick Drive home has turned himself in to authorities.

Jared Anthony McManus, 32, was arrested Monday at about 4 p.m., after he turned himself in on the outstanding warrants, Rowan County Sheriff’s officials say.

He was issued a $150,000 secured bond and remains in the Rowan County Detention Center.

The Sheriff’s Office searched the home, 605 Candlewick Drive, five days ago after receiving information McManus was making methamphetamine there. McManus lives at the home with older family members. He was not home during the search.

During the search, investigators located two, one-pot methamphetamine laboratories. One was located in the back yard and another was found in a dog house on the house’s back porch. Investigators found evidence of ongoing methamphetamine production, including lithium batteries, ammonium nitrate, pseudoephedrine, sodium hydroxide and other materials used in manufacturing.

The Candlewick Drive home was searched on Jan. 9, 2015, under suspicion of being a meth lab. During the earlier search, investigators discovered 200 milliliters of methamphetamine oil and precursor materials used to manufacture methamphetamine.

When the 2015 search occurred, McManus was out on a bond from an Aug. 15, 2014, arrest by the Granite Quarry Police Department for possession of heroin and drug paraphernalia.
