Rowan man held on meth charges

SALISBURY -- A Rowan County man is jailed under $75,000 bond, facing multiple methamphetamine-related charges, the sheriff’s office says.

Joshua Aaron Senk, 32, of Rockwell, turned himself in to deputies Tuesday night. The sheriff’s office had obtained arrest warrants earlier this week for Senk, whose home was searched last week.

The sheriff’s office says Senk has been charged with two counts of trafficking drugs, and two counts of possession of precursor chemicals for drug production.

The Special Investigative Unit of the sheriff’s office executed a search warrant May 22 at Senk’s residence, in the 2400 block of Windswept Way. Deputies say they found six 1-ounce meth labs, along with other drug paraphernalia. State agents joined the sheriff’s office in conducting an investigation, and that led to Senk’s arrest this week.

The sheriff’s office says the investigation is continuing, and additional arrests could be coming.
