Man what kind of charges are these? Destroying chicken coups and killing ducks? Lol so he sells drugs, but does does a little murder on the side. I wonder if he choked that chicken. I wonder if he killed the ducks then ate them. Can you eat a duck that was murdered? If a duck is killed without the intent of eating it, is it still worthy of eating? Also is it REALLY cruelty to animals? They were gonna eat those chickens anyway. Yall know that.
Personally I think that people who put crab in a pot then pour beer over them getting them drunk should be charged with cruelty to animals. Also, if you’re a pig stuffer. It’s one thing to kill a pig, but do you have to stuff it and embarrass it? How would you like it if somebody gutted you out and stuffed you?
I’m serious about this guy’s. No more stuffing animals. Let’s be better. 🙂
None of this matters.
The Salisbury, NC — A Salisbury man accused in a bizarre case that involves cruelty to animals and drug trafficking, will spend at least the next seven and half years in prison.
Kenneth Derrell Lark of Salisbury was convicted last week in Rowan County Criminal Superior Court of felony trafficking in cocaine, felony trafficking in opium/heroin, felony possession with intent to sell/deliver a schedule II controlled substance, felony possession with intent to manufacture/sell/deliver a schedule VI controlled substance, felony maintaining a vehicle/place/dwelling for controlled substances, misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia, misdemeanor resisting a public officer, three counts of felony cruelty to animals, misdemeanor child abuse, and misdemeanor breaking and/or entering.
Judge Kevin Bridges sentenced Lark to a minimum of 90 months to a maximum of 120 months in prison, along with a mandatory fine of $100,000.
On December 13, 2016, the Salisbury Police Department served a search warrant on West Monroe Street in Salisbury. Lark was inside the residence and ran out of the house and was not located at that time.
Detectives found a silver case in the garage near the location where Lark ran. Inside the silver case was marijuana, cocaine, hydrocodone pills, over $8,000 in U.S. Currency, and documents with Lark’s name.
Detectives also located marijuana and electronic scales in a bedroom.
On February 27, 2016, deputies with the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office received a report about an assault that occurred two days earlier. The reporting individual stated that her grandson was assaulted by Lark and that Lark also destroyed two chicken coups and killed baby ducks and chickens.
On April 5, 2017, detectives with the Salisbury Police Department observed Lark driving a vehicle and he was not wearing a seat belt. Detectives attempted to initiate a traffic stop when Lark pulled into a driveway and ran. During the foot pursuit, detectives observed Lark reach into his pocket and he was eventually detained. Detectives located hydrocodone pills in the area where Lark ran.
Lark had previously been convicted of felony assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, among other convictions.
Rowan County District Attorney Brandy Cook thanked Assistant District Attorney Tim Gould, the Salisbury Police Department, and the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office in seeing that Lark was brought to justice.
