An Auburn man who tried to bribe an officer with drugs is facing numerous charges related to an October 7 traffic stop.
An officer stopped Andre Kevin Carter, 33, of 402 Warpath Road in Auburn, after noticing Carter was not wearing a seatbelt.
Carter was unable to provide the officer with a driver’s license. Upon questioning, Carter said he did not have a license and identified himself as Jason Allen Johnson. Carter was placed in handcuffs at that point on suspicion of driving while unlicensed.
A database check of the name and date of birth provided by Carter did not return any information. When asked if Johnson was his real name, Carter admitted it was not and provided his actual information. A subsequent check of Carter’s identification showed his license had been suspended for failure to appear.
Carter pleaded with the officer to release him saying, “If you do not arrest me, I can get you some dope.”
The officer declined the offer and proceeded to search Carter’s vehicle. During the search, two bags of ecstasy pills were located.
Carter said the pills were fake, but said the officer could test them. Carter later admitted buying 100 pills of ecstasy from a chemist in Atlanta. Carter said he had sold approximately 36 pills at the Country Living Apartment complex in Auburn prior to being stopped. According to Carter, he sold the pills for $3.50 each.
Carter was charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance, driving while license suspended, no seatbelt and giving false information or false name to a law enforcement officer.
