PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A 20-year-old Providence man who police say belongs to a local gang has been sentenced to prison for gun and drug offenses.

Authorities say Miguel Wynns is a member of the Throwback for Days street gang.

Wynns was sentenced Friday in Providence Superior Court to 10 years in prison with 4 1/2 years to serve.

He pleaded guilty to possession of a firearm without a license and drug offenses.

Wynns was arrested in August 2014 after police say he was acting suspiciously in a car parked at Pasha Hookah Bar. Police say he had a pistol.

Wynns was arrested while out on bail in March 2015 after police say he delivered an opioid medication to a woman.

A search warrant at Wynns’s residence turned up heroin, ammunition and cash.
