DANVILLE, Va. - The FBI is asking for your help to find a suspected Danville gang member and gang associate named in two June 11 gang indictments.

Tanasia Coleman is believed to be associated with the MILLAs, a local Bloods chapter in Danville, according to the indictments.

Marcus Davis is believed to be associated with the Rollin' 60s, a local Crips chapter in Danville. 

Both face racketeering and gun charges and are two of 18 suspected gang members and associates that were arrested on June 14.

During a news conference on June 14 to announce the indictments, the U.S. district attorney for the western district of Virginia called the indictments the biggest gang crackdown in Danville in over a decade.

According to a news release from the FBI Friday afternoon, the gang crackdown is part of the Project Safe Neighborhoods initiative.
