Saskatchewan Roughriders receiver Duron Carter is facing two separate drug charges in Manitoba and Saskatchewan, according to a report in the Regina Leader-Post.
According to the story, Carter was arrested in Winnipeg on Nov. 25 for possession of a controlled substance. That’s in addition to the marijuana possession charge he was slapped with after being arrested at the Saskatoon Airport on Thursday. From the story:
Saskatoon police were called by Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) officials just before midnight Thursday. CBSA agents stopped a traveler and searched his bags and located marijuana. Police attended and arrested and charged Carter.
“We can confirm there was an incident last night where Duron Carter was charged with marijuana possession at the Saskatoon Airport. He was released from the airport and given an upcoming court date,” said Roughriders spokesperson Ryan Pollock in a statement issued to local media.
Carter now has court dates in Winnipeg Provincial Court on Feb. 15 and Saskatoon Provincial Court on March 27.
After an excellent 2017 campaign with the Riders, Carter signed a one-year contract extension at the end of January.
