“Take Back North Carolina” Initiative Announced

(NORTH CAROLINA NEWS NETWORK) — The U.S. Attorney’s Office held two news conferences Monday to announce a new initiative to combat violence and drug crimes in Eastern North Carolina.

Officials met at Kinston City Hall to discuss a new way to stop crime in the region.

Serious offenders could soon see more serious consequences.

United States Attorney Robert Higdon, Jr. says the idea is to take North Carolina back from drug dealers and the doctors that have over-prescribed the drugs.

Higdon says the “Take Back North Carolina” initiative will bring the full weight and resources of the federal court system in the fight against crime to several N.C. counties.
