LEXINGTON, N.C. — A Thomasville man faces drug trafficking charges after nearly 1.5 kilos of meth was found in a Lexington home, Davidson County deputies said.

David Lee Wyatt was arrested Thursday after a drug investigation at a home on Owen Road in Lexington.

Wyatt was at first charged with possession of meth, maintaining a vehicle for drug purposes and possession of drug paraphernalia.

However, when deputies and the SBI went to the home Friday to continue the investigation, 1,400 grams of meth and precursor chemicals to make meth were found, deputies said.

Wyatt was then given these additional charges: two counts of trafficking meth and one count each of possession of precursor chemicals and manufacturing meth.

He was given a $750,000 secured bond.
