LANDIS — Two Landis men remain in the Rowan County jail after they were charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, Rowan County officials said.

Rowan detectives were investigating a home at 115 N. Upright St. on the suspicion that the occupants had a meth lab inside. On Monday, investigators with the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office, the SBI Clandestine Laboratory Response team and the Southern Piedmont office of the SBI went to the home and served a search warrant.

In addition to the meth lab found in the home, investigators also found a one-pot meth lab. Investigators said the occupants poured the contents from a meth lab down the drain of a bathtub. Investigators seized a number of precursor chemicals and other products including meth oil from the home.

Aaron Thomas Elizalde, 19, of North Upright Street, was charged with felony manufacturing methamphetamine and felony possession of immediate precursor chemical. He remains in the county jail under a $100,000 secured bond.

Ronald Douglas Mueller, 30, also of North Upright Street, was charged with felony manufacturing a controlled substance Schedule I, felony maintaining a dwelling for controlled substances and felony possession of an immediate precursor chemical. He remains in jail under a $100,000 secured bond.
