LEXINGTON COUNTY, S.C. (WIS) - The Lexington County Sheriff’s Department has seized more than $100,000 in drugs and cash after arresting a motorcycle gang member during a traffic stop.

Steven Daniel Brown, 46, is charged with trafficking meth and possession with intent to distribute marijuana.

“Deputies, with the assistance of state troopers, stopped Brown on I-20 after he committed multiple moving violations,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “Brown is a documented member of a motorcycle gang known to deal drugs and guns. Deputies found about 7 pounds of meth in his vehicle during the traffic stop.”

After the traffic stop, deputies executed search warrants at two homes associated with Brown. One residence is on Westside Drive in West Columbia. The other is on Highway 321 in Gaston.
