BLOOMSBURG - A former federal law enforcement agent who brought down scores of criminals and illegal enterprises will speak at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 29, in Bloomsburg University's Carver Hall, Kenneth S. Gross Auditorium.
The free talk by Jay Dobyns, known in the law enforcement community as "Jaybird," is free and open to the public.
During more than 20 years as an undercover agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, Dobyns infiltrated street and prison gangs, gun-running groups, drug trafficking organizations, bomb makers, home invasion operations and contract murderers.
He routinely impersonated a professional hit man during federal murder-for-hire investigations.
As lead undercover agent for "Operation Black Biscuit," he penetrated the Hells Angels motorcycle gang and was the first law enforcement officer to become a full-patched member.
His memoir, "No Angel, My Harrowing Undercover Journey to the Inner Circle of the Hells Angels," is a New York Times bestseller published in eight languages and 12 countries.
He has been featured on "America's Most Wanted," History Channel and National Geographic's "Inside."
Copies of Dobyns' book are available in the University Store.
