Grammy-winning producer Randy Cantor arrested on suspicion of drug trafficking in Stateline

A Grammy-winning musician and producer was arrested in Stateline on Thursday with nearly 58 grams of methamphetamine, Tri-Net officials said.

Randy Cantor, known for his work with Sting, Bon Jovi, Rascal Flatts, Carrie Underwood and Ricky Martin, was arrested in a casino parking lot Thursday night in Stateline. He was arrested after the Tri-Net Task Force received information that he would be transporting two ounces of meth from California into the Stateline area.

Cantor was found with 57.9 grams of methamphetamine, according to law enforcement.

He was booked into the Douglas County Jail at 8 p.m. on suspicion of felony trafficking of a controlled substance greater than 28 grams, felony sales of a controlled substance, felony possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell and felony possession of a controlled substance.

The Douglas County Special Enforcement Team also assisted Tri-Net with the bust.

In 2002, Alejandra Guzmán won the Latin Grammy Award for “Best Rock Solo Vocal Album” for the album “Soy”, which Cantor is credited as a producer on.
