Man Arrested On Federal Gun Charge

Police have arrested a New Bern man on a federal gun charge.

Kenneth Tankston of Myrtle Avenue was stopped Friday after police learned he had an outstanding federal warrant for possession of a firearm by a prohibited person.

The 33-year-old was put in the Craven County jail without bond pending an appearance before a federal magistrate.

Tankston's arrest was made in conjunction with Project Safe Neighborhood, a federal, state & local law enforcement partnership designed to make communities safer by charging in federal court those who carry firearms which engaged in specific criminal activity.

    "specific criminal activity"....could you specify? Project Safe Neighborhood? Never heard of it. Googled it. Found out it focuses on getting rid of gang members. I love it!
