Alleged Crown Heights-based gang leader behind bars

The fugitive leader of a Crown Heights-based gang is now behind bars, according to police.

Devon Rodney, the alleged leader of the violent Folk Nation gang was arrested by federal authorities. Prosecutors say the gang is responsible for six robberies, at least four homicides and three attempted homicides, including that of a 10-year-old girl.

Officials say the gang's crimes spread throughout the tri-state area. Several other alleged members were indicted last month.
