(Newser) – Felicia "Snoop" Pearson, best known for her role as a drug dealer's hitman on HBO’s The Wire, was arrested along with more than 30 others this morning during raids on a large heroin and marijuana operation in Baltimore. Police, DEA agents, and other officials carried out the pre-dawn bust as part of a five-month drug investigation, the Baltimore Sun reports. Pearson’s troubled past includes a conviction of second-degree murder at just 14; she was arrested again in 2008.
