"Operation Spider Web" nets 100 fugitives

Posted: Updated:
An undercover operation in Rocky Mount landed a hundred fugitives behind bars.

Thursday, the Rocky Mount Police Department announced the conclusion of Operation Spider Web.
    
Law enforcement officers from across the area helped U.S. Marshals capture these dangerous and violent men and women.
    
Officers say each of the suspects arrested were wanted for breaking several of the state's drug laws.
    
In the span of two weeks, police brought in 100 suspects, served 243 warrants, seized 5 firearms and 63 grams of cocaine and marijuana.

“The citizens of Rocky Mount deserve this,” said Scott Parker, United States Marshal. “The citizens of eastern North Carolina deserve this and we're going to make sure it happens.”

Among those arrested are 23-year-old Keeandus Barnes. He was wanted for his involvement in a drive by shooting and is now facing attempted first-degree murder charges.
