Police warn citizens of possible gang activity

November 4, 2011

EAST GREENWICH — They may not be harassing you, or walking down Main Street in packs displaying their colors.

But there are gang members passing through East Greenwich every day, whether it’s to work or go about their everyday tasks.

Providence Police Det. Sgt. Michael Wheeler, a member of the department’s anti-gang unit for 16 years and its leader since April 2005, did not raise a red flag over East Greenwich when he recently spoke to members of F.A.C.E.S. (Family Access to Community Empowerment Services) at the East Greenwich Police Station Community Room.
