Carter was arrested during an investigation by the sheriff’s narcotics unit and the Coastal Narcotics Enforcement Team. The home is just south of John Clark Road.

Narcotics agents arrested Carter on charges of possession with intent to distribute meth and possession of cocaine.

He was booked at the Harrison County jail.
