NEWS / Leader of Nine Trey Headbustas Set of Bloods Sentenced to 20 Years in Prison for Leading Narcotics N

TRENTON – Attorney General Paula T. Dow and Criminal Justice Director Stephen J. Taylor announced that the leader of the Nine Trey Headbustas set of the Bloods was sentenced today to 20 years in state prison for directing a narcotics trafficking network in Camden while incarcerated in New Jersey State Prison.

According to Director Taylor, Michael Anderson, 38, was sentenced to 20 years in state prison, including 10 years without possibility of parole, by Superior Court Judge Samuel D. Natal in Camden County. Anderson pleaded guilty on Oct. 29, 2010 to a first-degree charge of leading a narcotics trafficking network.

Deputy Attorney General Jill S. Mayer prosecuted the case and took the plea for the Division of Criminal Justice Gangs & Organized Crime Bureau.

Anderson and 14 other gang members were indicted by a state grand jury on July 8, 2008 as a result of Operation Broadway, a joint investigation conducted by the New Jersey Division of Criminal Justice and the High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) Joint Camden Task Force. A total of 18 defendants have pleaded guilty in the investigation, including all defendants named in the indictment and three additional defendants who pleaded guilty to accusations.

“Through our multi-agency investigation, we have ensured that Anderson will remain in prison for many years,” said Attorney General Dow. “We have sent a clear message that we will not allow gang leaders like Anderson to continue to inflict crime and violence on our communities from behind bars.”

“The Nine Trey Headbustas brought drugs and violence to the Broadway Avenue business district of Camden,” said Director Taylor. “As a result of Operation Broadway, we have convicted 18 members of this gang, including its top leaders.”

The Nine Trey Headbustas set, which has direct ties to Philadelphia, was dealing large quantities of heroin on Broadway Avenue, and on Stevens and Benson Streets in Camden. Anderson holds the title of “Original Original Gangster (OOG)” or “Godfather” of this faction of the Bloods. The state’s investigation revealed that he exercised leadership authority over the gang from New Jersey State Prison in Trenton.

Attorney General Dow credited Sgt. Richard M. Carlin, Deputy Attorney General Mayer and former Deputy Attorney General Christopher St. John for coordinating the investigation for the New Jersey Division of Criminal Justice Gangs & Organized Crime Bureau.

Attorney General Dow also credited the following members of the HIDTA Joint Camden Task Force for conducting and assisting in the investigation:

* Camden County Prosecutor’s Office
* Camden City Police Department
* Camden County Sheriffs Department
* New Jersey State Police
* U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration
* Federal Bureau of Investigation
* U.S. Marshals Service
* U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Municipal Task Force Alliance
* National Guard
