|The Martin Police Department is reporting it allegedly uncovered 31 grams of methamphetamine during a routine traffic stop on N. Lindell Street in Martin on Friday. |
Officers pulled over a white Cadillac Deville after it was observed that the driver, William Carter, 43 of Paris, apparently wasn’t wearing a seatbelt. After conducting a driver’s license check, officers discovered that Carter’s driver’s license was suspended, according to the incident report.
After being placed in the custody, Carter allegedly told officers that there were illegal drugs in the vehicle, and showed Officer Guy Pryor where a pipe and a small bag of methamphetamine was located, according to the report.
Upon conducting a search of the vehicle, officers uncovered a large bag and several small bags containing a substance believed to be methamphetamine.
The substance tested positive for methamphetamine by a Drug Task Force agent.
Carter was taken into custody and charged with possession of Schedule II with intent, unlawful drug paraphernalia uses and activities and driving on a revoked, suspended or canceled driver’s license.
