An alleged gang that has been lying low in recent months is rumored to be behind Thursday morning’s break-in and house fire in Carrollton, according to an anonymous source. Police Chief Donnie King said they do not have much evidence at this time to confirm or deny those rumors. “There’s no link we can prove right now, but we aren’t ruling that out. There are reasons to think that this house fire could be connected to the Red Knights. They’re probably reforming. They have not been too active because of the cold weather, but apparently that is a possibility,” King said. Click to hear KMZU’s Mike Stone talk with Chief King:
