ANDERSON — A man wanted on three outstanding warrants was allegedly found with cocaine on Monday.
Teon J. Carter, 24, of Anderson, was arrested by police who were investigating possible drug activity at a Jefferson Street home. An officer who investigated the home two days earlier reported meeting someone matching Carter's description who allegedly gave the officer a fake name. Carter reportedly used the fake name again when he was arrested on Monday, and faces two counts of false informing in addition to a felony cocaine possession charge.
According to a probable cause affidavit, after police discovered Carter was likely the man who provided a fake name, they went to the Jefferson Street home to investigate again. At about 3 p.m. Monday, a Ford Taurus driven by Carter was stopped as it pulled up to the house. Police allegedly found a plastic bag filled with crack in Carter's jeans pocket.
Carter was also wanted on three outstanding warrants, including criminal recklessness and possession of a handgun without a license, domestic battery and strangulation, and invasion of privacy.
Carter faces an additional charge of violation of probation.
