Niagara Gazette — Christopher "Drama" Carter has never been shy about how he feels about law enforcement.
When local, state and federal drug agents were looking for him in a 2011 round-up dubbed Operation Wild Nation, Carter took to social media to post a profanity laced tirade daring cops to come find him and threatening the “snitches” who put the “feds” on to him.
When he finally surrendered, he posted "The feds got me" and "Free Drama.”
Carter was freed when federal prosecutors decided not to go forward with his case.
Now though, the man police say had ties to both the Stash Team and Get Money Nation gangs is back behind bars after Falls Police narcotics detectives raided his 20th Street home on Wednesday night and came away with a large quantity of drugs and a pair of handguns.
"He's been a real target of ours and it was beautiful to get him," Narcotics Division Capt. Dave LeGault said following Wednesday's raid.
LeGault said his detectives had been tracking Carter's drug dealing for several months, before taking him down and then allowing the Emergency Response Team to hit his house.
"We were concerned with him because of our knowledge of his violent past," LeGault said.
When he was taken into custody, Carter had a baggie filled with marijuana in his possession. However, when ERT officers entered his home, they made a startling find.
"As soon as we got into the house, right there, in plain view, there was cocaine and a handgun lying on a table," LeGault said.
A further search of the home turned up more crack cocaine and a 9 mm handgun with a loaded magazine and loose ammunition. Detectives also seized almost $2,000 cash from the home.
Investigators said the home appeared to be undergoing renovation, with the walls and ceilings open and the plumbing and electrical wiring exposed. City housing inspectors came to the scene and condemned the structure.
