A Florissant man faces a felony drug charge after police discovered more than 375 grams of marijuana in his car, according to St. Louis County circuit court.

Neighbors had called police to report Carter for using their front yard as a toilet, and he was still there, passed out in his car, when St. Louis County police officers arrived awhile later, according to charging documents.
Police reporting spying some weed in Carter's cup holder, and a search of the car revealed a suitcase filled with 378.4 grams of marijuana.

A judge set Carter's bond at $7,500.
