A Sampling of Fabian Carter Arrests

Born on 1/29/1970, Fabian Lavelle Carter is 5'8" and 205 pounds. He is off to a good start this year with three arrests already in 2014. His rap sheet is almost 3,000 words and getting longer.

Samples of reports of his arrests include the following:

Last month, Carter was spotted entering a pickup truck he did not own at 8:30 p.m. on a Sunday evening, in the 1800 block of Niagara Avenue. Once inside the truck, Carter stole a GPS, a bottle of cologne, a hands-free earpiece, and 70 cents in pennies, according to police. Neighbors said they saw Carter, pulled him out of the truck and held him on the ground.

Carter reportedly said, "Call my cousin. He'll give you $100 if you let me go."

Carter was charged with petit larceny and third-degree criminal trespassing.

Last October, Carter pulled off a number of smash-and-grab car larcenies on Linwood and Cleveland avenues. Police found a brown colored brick in one car whose window he smashed. He got $4 in change from that vehicle. From another car whose window he shattered, he got a GPS.

Police have said that car break-in reports actually drop during the times when he is incarcerated and rise the moment he gets back on the streets.

In November, 2010, at about 6 a.m. on a Thursday morning, Carter, 40, was reported trying various car doors near 29th Street and South Avenue. Officers found him carrying a crack pipe, a GPS, 144 pennies, 15 nickels, 15 dimes and 11 quarters. When officers hit the home button on the GPS unit it showed an address other than Carter's. He was charged with second-degree criminal use of drug paraphernalia and fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property.

One day in November, 2008, appearing in the snow were footprints leading to every car in the neighborhood. The trail led police to Carter. He ran and officers chased him through six backyards. Carter grabbed a child's bike and tried to ride away in the snow before being stopped with a Taser. He had in his possession $40.62 in change, a Yahtzee game, cigarettes, chapstick, three lighters and a pocketknife.

At 10:12 on a Monday morning in 2007, Carter was reported as seen emerging from a known drug house on 13th Street. Upon being stopped by Police, he was found with one-and-a-half grams of crack cocaine in his possession.

Another time in 2007 Carter was arrested after leading police on a high-speed chase. He was charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, resisting arrest, second-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, unreasonable speed, reckless driving, failure to signal turn, failure to yield to an emergency vehicle, failure to stop at a red light, second-degree criminal mischief and seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. Carter had crack cocaine in his possession at the time of his arrest.
