A 20–year–old Madison man was arrested on Monday night after officers with the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office completed a three week drug investigation.

Quandaries Denarius Carter was arrested at his Pinetree Circle residence at approximately 8:30 p.m., said Capt. Chris Bish, Investigations Division, Morgan County Sheriff’s Office.

Officers seized more than six ounces of suspected marijuana and $1,294 in cash. Carter was charged with one count of possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute.

Bish said officers set up surveillance on Carter’s Pinetree Circle residence after receiving reports that traffic to the residence had increased “10 fold.”

“We knew he was dealing,” Bish said.

Officers set up several controlled marijuana buys from the residence, Bish said.

Carter was arrested without incident.
