11 NC officers busted in I-95 area drug operation, say investigators

More than a dozen law enforcement officers, including 11 in North Carolina, have been arrested in a government sting that included the FBI, the government announced last week.

WRAL-TV reported on Wednesday that each of the NC officers who were indicted have since confessed, according to prosecutors.

Thomas Walker, the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District, said multiple people were arrested in a major sting of cocaine and heroin operations. Those arrested include five current members of the Northampton County sheriff’s office.

They were charged with trafficking cocaine and heroin up and down the I-95 corridor.
