Police: 4 motorcycle gang members face weapons, drug charges
Four motorcycle gang members from Kentucky have been arrested in Rhode Island on weapons and drug charges.
Rhode Island State Police say the members of the Iron Horsemen Motorcycle Club were pulled over Friday after weaving in and out of traffic on Interstate 95 in Warwick.
Police say troopers found two loaded guns, large knives and crystal methamphetamine during the traffic stop.
Police arrested 55-year-old Robert Frayer, of Princeton, Kentucky; 41-year-old Michael Matteson, of Benton, Kentucky; 58-year-old Jerry Palmer, of Princeton, Kentucky; and 47-year-old Steven Overby, of Hardin, Kentucky.
Frayer is charged with two counts of carrying a pistol without a license: Troopers allege he was carrying a 9mm pistol and a .380 pistol. He was also charged with two counts of carrying a weapon other than a firearm – specifically, knives with blades longer than three inches, according to State Police.
Matteson is charged with possession of Clonazepam and with carrying a knife.
Palmer is charged with three counts of possession of weapons other than firearms.
Overby is charged with possession of crystal methamphetamine.
They were arraigned Friday and each released on a $10,000 surety bond.
