A Lexington man was taken into custody Wednesday, accused of transporting some two kilos of methamphetamine.

Roberto Delgado, 22, was charged with trafficking amphetamine after he was stopped for a traffic violation by a Davie Sheriff’s deputy, reported Chief Deputy Brian Jacobs.

Officers had probable cause to search the vehicle, Jacobs said, when they found the meth and a loaded semi-automatic shotgun.

Jacobs estimated the street value of the meth to be $35,000.

Delgado was placed in the Davie Detention Center in lieu of an $85,0000 bond.
