A St. Paul man has been charged with fifth-degree drug possession after Woodbury police found heroin, needles, razor blades and other drug-related items in his car following a Nov. 4 traffic stop.
Some of the drug paraphernalia was discovered near a child’s car seat.
Aaron Michael Carter, 23, of St. Paul, faces up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine if convicted.
After he failed to stop at a stop sign at Tamarack Road and Weir Drive, police pulled over Carter, who appeared anxious during the stop, according to the criminal complaint.
He told police he was going to lose his job and “his life was over,” the complaint says.
Officers found heroin in his pocket and his sock, and in the car discovered six zip-lock baggies with an “8-ball” logo on them, used needles, two razor blades and other drug-related items.
