The leader of a gang connected to the Bloods in North Carolina city has been sentenced to 30 years in prison. The 24-year-old Kejuan Tizom Shabazz Smith was convicted in a federal court of conspiracy to distribute heroin and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon in Wilmington, North Carolina.
Smith's sentencing was Wednesday and was based on recordings from a federal wiretap done sometime in July and August. Federal and state law enforcement agencies determined that Smith led the Nine Trey Gangsters which is a Wilmington subset of the United Blood Nation gang.

U.S. Attorney's Eastern District of North Carolina Office says Smith was arrested in August 2016 after the federal wiretaps were recorded which prosecutors then used to convict the man. Part of the evidence used against Smith were recordings from August 4th, 2016 which showed he stockpiled firearms and ammunition in preparation for a hit he was going to carry out on a rival gang member.
Six other accomplices were arrested and sentenced to 1-7 years.
