Police have arrested a gang member on gun charges after tying him to a car used in several recent robberies.
Thomas Dewayne Sales, 21, of 1705 Wilcox Blvd., was charged with two counts of being a felon in possession of a firearm as well as marijuana possession.
An officer said on Saturday at 8:30 p.m. he was passing by 1705 Wilcox when he saw a white Nissan Sentra with tinted windows and damage to the rear driver side door.
