LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC (WACH) – More than $100,000 in drugs and cash were found after arresting a motorcycle gang member during a traffic stop Monday afternoon on Interstate 20, according to the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department.

Steven Daniel Brown, 26, is charged with trafficking methamphetamine and possession with intent to distribute marijuana, according to arrest warrants.
