Man Charged With Murder Of NC Teacher Who Tried Robbing Mexican Cartel Member

Popular NC teacher trying to rob Mexican drug cartel in Alamance County killed in shootout

A popular Union County teacher described by family and friends as a devoted father, teacher and coach was fatally wounded in a shootout when he and his brother-in-law tried to rob members of a Mexican drug cartel. Reported by our news partner, ABC11. By ABC11

The U.S. Marshals Service charged a man Monday with the murders of two men — including a popular Union County teacher — three months ago during a shootout involving alleged members of Mexican drug cartel.

Gar-yon-ded-weh Stepney, 41, is being charged with first-degree murder for shooting both Barney Dale Harris, 40, and Alonso Beltran Lara, 18, on April 8 in Alamance County.

Marshals found Stepney in Greensboro, where he was arrested and transported to the Alamance County Detention Center, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Stepney hasn’t received bond, and he will be taken to a district court judge on July 20 for a bond hearing.

Harris was a Spanish teacher and head boys’ basketball and track coach at Union Academy Charter School in Monroe.

An ‘old Western shootout’

The incident happened around midnight on Wyatt Road in Green Level — a town 55 miles west of Raleigh and 115 miles east of Charlotte.

Police found Harris dead in the bedroom of a mobile home and Lara wounded. Alamance County Sheriff Terry Johnson called the mobile home a drug “stash house.” Lara died later at a local hospital, the Observer previously reported.

Harris had several gunshot wounds from what Johnson called an “old Western shootout” between two criminal enterprises. 

Harris and his brother-in-law, Steven Alexander Stewart Jr. of Wadesboro, were allegedly part of one of the enterprises. 

The two men were attempting to rob Lara, who Johnson described as a drug runner for the Jalisco New Generation Cartel, for drugs and money.

Lara was forced outside, bound by his feet and shot twice in the head “execution style,” according to Johnson.

A bag containing 1.2 kilos of cocaine (about 2.6 pounds), about $7,000 in cash and five guns were found at the scene, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Stewart was arrested and charged with first-degree burglary in relation to the Wyatt Road incident on April 11 at 1 a.m., according to WBTV, the Observer’s news partner. On April 12, Stewart was charged with first-degree murder and possession of a firearm by a felon.

Union Academy Charter School in Monroe, NC, posted tributes, like this one, to Barney Harris after the popular Spanish teacher and basketball coach died on April 8, 2021. The posts disappeared on April 14 after the Alamance County Sheriff’s Office said Harris died in a shootout with members of a Mexican drug cartel.

  1. Yes I remember this article.
    Harris the school teacher, was not making enough money, had put a GPS, to rob a stash house, from the baby killer cartel aka cjng. Harris was wearing a bullet proof vest and still lost his life.

  2. He must’ve been on drugs to make this kind of desperate move. The outcome was never going to be good. Even if the robbery was successful, someone would be looking for their stolen merchandise. Dicen que para pendejo no se estudia

    4. 4:29 are you stupid? This isn’t the 50s anymore a lot of the money you spend ends up overseas if not with foreign company, in some billionaires off share bank account(s). And it seems like you have more of a problem with the money being sent to Mexico than you do with the actual drugs. I think you just don’t like Mexicans and also probably complain about immigrants sending money to family back home. it’s none of your business and what others do with their money, nosey mf

    5. Its illegal money you idiot it belongs to whomever got the balls to take it and the brain to keep it. Here in the border theres ppl that make a living robbing the cartels. 10 keys here 5 keys there lay low do it again. Shit the cartels are so compartmentalized that they rob themselves so if you get a chance why not. Plus fuck letting that money get to mexico to some child killing asshole piece of shit.

  31. No Spanish words, only English. You know what it's like, a relative, friend and easy money. It's not easy. Comes with blood and high risk. He got caught. Stupid for sure, but understandable for many of us who sought an easier way. CJNG, just over a kilo . not exactly a big stash house, but still susceptible to robbery and usage. Many prefer the second choice.

    1. David for David not a stupid move. Thanks to Barney Harris bravery, he has exposed that Cjng is in fact, in many places on the east side of USA, which will open the door, for law enforcement agencies to have specific units to deal with Cartels wanting to settle down on US soil. Once again not a stupid move. Let's thank beloved Barney Harris.

  37. Someone in the comments stated where's Al Sharpton on this matter. Thats a funny thing is he only gets involved when the Police kill a colored person, weather the Police were in the right or wrong. There's money to be made there. But a Cartel killing Harris Barney, hell no he won't get involved.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Barney wanted to drive a pimped out, purple car, with tiny donut tires,playing Snoop Dog songs, while cruising the boulevard. His only way to get money was to rob a safehouse, he put a GPS tracker on Cartel car him and his buddy lost, but did not mention if his buddy got killed too.

  40. I'm a Black American who knew a small bit about "the business." I was somewhat wary of my own people in this business, because I know us. I much preferred dealing with Mexicans. Superior product, consistent quality. Plus (no small thing), I felt safer dealing with them.

    1. If a white guy wrote this, he would be “raaaaycisss”. Also, not sure how this is not an indictment of your “culture”. Nonetheless, you (for once) have some honesty in your post and, let’s be clear, no one else wants to deal with those MFs either. I personally would feel safer among a pack of wolves.

    2. James Brown I regret to say, but Barney Harris, was already excelling in life, but somehow or another he became greedy and wanted more money and look what happens. He did by exposing that CJNG is practically in our backyard, which will put more resources at reducing Cartels making home.

  42. 9:03pm-

    a group of cash broke dudes with neither a plug nor intention to middle for one, can most certainly become on par with a pack of wolves should someone come looking for product with money in hand to spend...

    my guess is mr lara was a local independent, mr harris probably a part time base head who couldnt coach the money for that ball he got fronted the week prior....well you see the result...

    if it wasnt tragic enough here comes the state to pick up the scraps with charges in hand ready to put the survivor in a cage for life...

    taking no sides here, its savage all around.

    you dont do drugs? i dont do drugs? then we ought to legalize drugs all the better, less harm, less non sense....but to get there people gotta pull they heads out they nalgas first to gain a sense held common...ahem common sense
    ..

    excuse me, ive thrown my 2cents in the cup, i expect to see yours in that cup as well if its worth a dayum...

  44. 10:41

    forgive me i misread the àrticle and thought police had arrested and charged the individual getting robbed with murder.


    mr lara was only 18 years old apparently, i say only not to imply that isnt commonly very much an adult especially in that world. someone probably assumed they could easily run a play something savage over on younger man on the account of his age and perceived inexperience and no doubt misplaced trust, sorry coach, karma saw your haste for greed and decided to blow the whistle, for dem shenanigans attempted be the deed of the most foul.
