Niagara Gazette — Carter, 22, 488 20th St., was charged with second and third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, two counts of third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, one count of fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, unlawful possession of marijuana, criminal use of drug paraphernalia and aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.
LeGault said investigators were pleased to have Carter off the streets again.
"I think he's a real important guy insofar as narcotics dealing in the city is concerned," the narcotics captain said. "He is well known to everyone in our office."
Just over an hour after taking Carter down, narcotics detectives and ERT members were back in action, raiding a home in the 500 block of Tenth Street.
"That was a big nuisance house," LeGault said. "There were a lot of people who were going in there and selling weed and then they were smoking in there as well."
When officers entered the home, they found a number of people inside, including William Lewis. Lewis had a baggie containing marijuana and more than $500 in his possession.
Detectives asked Lewis how he got the cash and he replied, "I got it from selling weed."
"(Lewis) was in there selling his (weed) and then smoking up (with his customers)," LeGault said. "That house was just a huge pain for the neighbors. There was constant traffic in and out."
Lewis, 30, 1636 Falls St., was charged with unlawful possession of marijuana.
