Rowan officials looking for Salisbury man involved in meth lab
SALISBURY — Rowan County investigators say they are looking for a man involved in a six-month long meth lab investigation. Earlier this week, a Salisbury pair were charged after deputies found bomb making materials and remnants of 10 “one-pot” meth labs.
Officials are looking for Christopher Joseph Ramsey, 30, of the 5500 block of Old Mocksville Road. Investigators say a warrant for his arrest has been issued for felony manufacturing methamphetamine.
According to the warrant, Ramsey conspired with Adam Seth Anderson and Sebrina Lechel Carpenter to manufacture the drug.
Officials said they received information through Salisbury-Rowan Crime Stoppers that Anderson and Carpenter specifically were involved in the manufacture of methamphetamine and possibly the manufacture of illegal explosives.
Members of the Rowan County Sheriff’s Special Investigations Unit began looking into the matter.
Detectives were able to determine there were numerous purchases of pseudoephedrine, a main ingredient in the manufacture of meth, made by both Anderson and Carpenter.
A third person, later identified as Ramsey, was involved with numerous purchases of pseudoephedrine. Ramsey also lives at the same address as Carpenter and Anderson.
In and around the residence, detectives found the remains of at least 10 one-pot meth labs, and material used to manufacture incendiary devices. They also found a ledger that contained numerous bomb making recipes.
Detectives found meth precursor materials and ammunition.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Christopher Ramsey are asked to contact the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office at 704-216-8700, Salisbury-Rowan Crime Stoppers at 1-866-639-5245 or online at tips.salisburyrowancrimestoppers.org to report information anonymously.
