Sheriff: Man with multiple meth labs, including one in dog house, now in jail

SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) - A man wanted by Rowan Sheriff's deputies in connection with multiple meth labs found at a home in a Salisbury neighborhood has now been apprehended.

Jared Anthony McManus, 32, was arrested on Monday and booked into the jail on Monday night just after 10:30 pm.

McManus is charged with maintaining a dwelling for the drug trade, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession and manufacture of the chemicals and substances used to make methapmhetamine.

Bond is set at $150,000.

The search for McManus began last week after a search warrant was served on Candlewick Drive based on information that someone was making meth on that property.

Deputies believe McManus is behind the meth labs found. He was convicted on April 20, 2016 for having ingredients to make methamphetamine and has been on probation since then.

In last week's search, deputies say they found two one pot meth labs behind the home, one in the back yard and one inside a dog house on the back porch.

Investigators say there was evidence of meth production and found supplies used to make the drug.

Officials say McManus lived in the Candlewick home with family members and was not home when the property was searched.
