Authorities say that a Forsyth County man has been charged with drug trafficking after a search of his vehicle during a traffic stop allegedly yielded a large amount of narcotics.

Connor Matthew Delaney was taken into custody on Tuesday, Jan. 14, after his vehicle was stopped for a minor traffic violation in the area of Majors and Castleberry roads and his vehicle was flagged as having an expired registration, according to Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Stacie Miller.

While speaking with Delaney, deputies received consent to search his pockets and allegedly located a small amount of marijuana, Miller said, giving them probable cause to search the vehicle.

In the glove box of the vehicle, deputies allegedly found a “large amount” of methamphetamine and then placed Delaney under arrest.

Delaney has been charged with trafficking methamphetamine and possession of marijuana less than 1 ounce, as well as several traffic citations.

He is being held in the Forsyth County Jail under no bond.
