2 family members arrested, 2 wanted on various charges

SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. (WPRI) — A months-long narcotics investigation in South Kingstown resulted in two arrests Friday morning and police say they're still working to track down two more suspects.

South Kingstown police said they executed a search warrant at a Branch Street home and took Sandra and Daniel Henley into custody.

Sandra Henley, 69, repeatedly kicked an officer and tried to leave the scene during the arrest, according to police. Daniel Henley 48, tried to fight the arresting officers, police said.

During the ordeal, Daniel Henley was reportedly bitten by a pit bull that lives at the home, which police said was taken to the town's animal shelter. Police noted that the dog did not show any signs of aggression towards the officers, and said Henley was taken to the hospital for treatment.

Sandra Henley was charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct while Daniel Henley is facing multiple charges, including disorderly conduct. Both have been released and are scheduled to face a judge later this month.

Police said they found suspected narcotics inside the home, adding that they've been called to the address several times in the past and have received complaints from neighbors.

Police are now working to track down two other members of the family who were not home when the warrant was executed.

Rayne Henley, 20, is wanted on robbery charges while Heather Henley, 49, is wanted on fraud charges out of North Kingstown.

Anyone with information on Rayne Henley's whereabouts is asked to call South Kingstown police at (401) 783-3321 and anyone with information on Heather Henley's whereabouts should contact North Kingstown police at  (401) 294-3316.
