SALISBURY — A Rockwell man remains behind bars after he removed his electronic ankle monitor while on parole and later apprehended.

The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office charged Alex Wesley Sadler, 24, of Broom Street with misdemeanor tampering or interfering with an electronic monitoring device, misdemeanor failure to appear and misdemeanor parole violation.

According to Maj. John Sifford, this all occurred when a probation officer went to the last known address to look for Sadler and he was not there.
