An alleged gang member in Buffalo has been indicted on federal gun and drug charges.

Gregory Ramos, who is believed to be the getaway driver for the deadly Anchor Bar shooting, was arrested and charged by criminal complaint with possession with intent to distribute cocaine and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.

Prosecutors say the 24-year-old is a member of the FEB gang, which has a history of drug trafficking and violent crime. Ramos is accused of assaulting a woman and threatening her life on May 21 on Fargo Avenue. Prosecutors say he fled before officers arrived.

Days later, prosecutors say Niagara Falls police tried to stop Ramos. During a chase, they say Ramos threw something from his car window which turned out to be cocaine. It's alleged Ramos also threw a handgun from his car that shattered another car's window.

That chase ended on Grand Island. Ramos was eventually taken into custody after prosecutors say he took off into the woods.

Ramos faces five years in prison if convicted and a $1,000,000 fine.
