SALISBURY — The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office on Saturday served a warrant on a Salisbury man who was wanted on several larceny charges.

According to Capt. John Sifford, deputies went to the residence of Chad Keith Stensrud, 35, to serve an outstanding warrant at 11:20 p.m. Saturday.

No one was at the home in the 300 block of Benjamin Trot Lane. So, deputies left to locate Stensrud’s vehicle. As they were leaving the neighborhood, deputies located a white Chevy Silverado, believed to be Stensrud’s vehicle, heading to the home, according to the arrest report.

Deputies returned to the residence and noticed the vehicle was sideways in the driveway. Sifford said deputies approached the home and announced they were there to serve warrants on Stensrud. They did not get a response. They forced entry into the home, Sifford said.

Stensrud was arrested on the porch of the home for the outstanding warrants. He was charged with two counts of felony larceny, a felony attempted larceny and three counts of misdemeanor first-degree trespassing for warrants dated to Nov. 10 and Dec. 8. He was also charged with misdemeanor resist, obstruct, delay an officer.

Stensrud remained in Rowan County Detention Center on Tuesday.
