A Dozen Busted On Drug Charges

An ongoing drug investigation has a dozen suspected drug offenders and gang members behind bars.

New Bern Police say the arrests this week are part of the year long multi-agency operation known as "Operation Stars and Shield."

Police say they arrested twelve people including several members of the United Blood Nation gang.

Other recent arrests in the investigation included four suspects.

Also members of the gang who are charged with killing Marine Anthony Gonzales last September in New Bern.

    Obama said he did Drugs in College. The FBI should find out who sold the drugs to him. He should give the FBI their names.

    Norma - You are exactly right! Community awareness is needed to thwart any kind of criminal activity. As for "who do you trust", you tell me? Would you rather take your chance with the police, where 99% of them are doing the job for the RIGHT reasons, or would you rather put your trust that if you "pretend" to not see things that the criminals will overlook you, when 99% of the criminals will steal from their own parents/grandparents, rape children, or kill their own family. Turning a blind eye because you are scared you will run across the "one percenter" in Law Enforcement will not do much to make your home any safer. I mean really, when was the last time you saw on the news that someone got shot because they called the police on suspicious behavior? I work in Greenville, we have FAR more crime than Snow Hill, and I have yet to see a case here where someone was shot because they called us. Whatever makes you sleep better though.

    im glad these gangsters are off the streets, and im grateful for the police. i think its sad that these young people have wasted their lives and their potential for the sake of evil--all that will give them is a life of misery and a pointless death in the end. if you can make a difference in someones life by encouraging them as a child that they have worth and potential, please do! most gangsters joined up because they want people to respect them. you cannot force someone to respect you, even if you do it at gunpoint! teach children to earn it by doing what is right.

    with the global changes and unemployement. it would be safe to know who to trust in the police force. people see and hear things they shouldn't know, but who can you talk and trust to tell inf. with yourself being known or shot for telling. we need a community watch with cb radio's in homes for safety and faster services in police force as well. the safey of all of our children to keep them off the streets, and keeping them on a good path.
