 LANCASTER – A traffic stop in Lancaster resulted in the arrests of a known gang member and a woman and the discovery of three pounds of methamphetamine, thousands of dollars in cash and a semi-automatic handgun, authorities said today.

Christopher Delgado, a 37-year-old Lancaster resident, was driving in the 200 block of East Lancaster Boulevard about 9 p.m. Friday when deputies assigned to the Lancaster Community Appreciation Program conducted a traffic stop.

His passenger, Angie Zaldivar, 34, also a Lancaster resident, was in possession of Vicodin pills and a credit card “skimming” device, authorities said.

Believing the pair might be involved in criminal activity, deputies obtained a search warrant for their apartment in the 300 block of East Lancaster Boulevard.

They found a hidden compartment in the floor of the master bedroom closet where they found two plastic bags of crystal methamphetamine, a loaded 9mm semi-automatic handgun and $7,000 in cash.

They also found additional bags and containers of methamphetamine hidden in other areas of the apartment.

The value of the drugs was estimated at $30,000.

The two were arrested for suspicion of narcotics violations.
