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 Thursday.

Thomas Walker, the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District, said multiple people were arrested Thursday morning 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.

Walker said there were arrests at an airport in Halifax County and a warehouse in Rocky Mount. A second group was arrested at a warehouse in Rocky Mount. The undercover operation has been ongoing for about a year and a half.

Arrested were:

  • Eight current or former officers
  • Three correctional officers
  • Two Virginia prison employees
  • One 911 dispatcher in Northampton County
