FORT PIERCE — A Fort Pierce man was arrested nearly a month and a half after detectives found about 3 pounds of marijuana and 48 grams of cocaine in his home, according to a police report.
Enrique Delgado, 19, was charged by Fort Pierce Police Department officers Tuesday with cocaine trafficking, possession of marijuana, possession with intent to sell or deliver marijuana, possession of meth with the intent to sell or deliver, possession of a controlled substance without a prescription and possession or use of drug equipment.
In late August, detectives from the Crime Suppression Unit, a task force of local, federal and state officers including the U.S. Marshal’s Office and Federal Bureau of Investigation, searched Delgado’s home in the 900 block of South 15th Street, according to the report.
Though Delgado wasn’t home, detectives searched his room and found 3 pounds of marijuana, 48 grams of cocaine, 8 grams of meth, a Smith Wesson .38 Special revolver, about 400 rounds of ammunition and drug paraphernalia, the report states.
Detectives also located several boxes of packing material and digital scales with marijuana and cocaine residue in them. Delgado’s personal documents were in the room, as well.
Delgado’s roommate, Christian White, was arrested Aug. 24.
Delgado is being held at the St. Lucie County Jail with a $135,500 bail.
