An allegedly high-ranking member of the Glen Park Affiliates street gang in Gary is facing charges of felony possession of a firearm.
Michael “Mike G” Dion Smith was denied bond Friday because he is considered a “danger to society,” according to a news release from Gary police.
In April, members of the Multi-Agency Gang Unit stopped Smith at 36th Place and Georgia Street in Gary when they found a Ruger 9 mm pistol inside his car, police said. Smith was arrested on probable cause for 48 hours before being released.

Gary police and the FBI’s Gang Response Investigative Team executed a search warrant Monday in Lake Station in an attempt to locate Smith. He turned himself in to federal authorities Tuesday.
