A Salisbury man accused of making methamphetamine in a doghouse was jailed Monday night after turning himself in on outstanding arrest warrants.

Rowan County sheriff’s investigators had searched for Jared Anthony McManus, 32, since they found two one-pot meth labs on his property May 31, one in the backyard and the other in the doghouse on a porch of his home in the 600 block of Candlewick Drive.

Candlewick Drive is off N.C. 150, just east of Jake Alexander Boulevard.

McManus was on probation after being convicted April 20 of possession/distribution of meth precursors. He was in the Rowan County jail Tuesday on $150,000 bail.
