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.
