PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) - A Smithfield firefighter has been sentenced after being swept up in a major crackdown on motorcycle gangs in Rhode Island. 

Thomas Mulcahey, 54, pleaded no contest to two misdemeanor drug charges last month.

He was arrested in May as part of a R.I. State Poilce sting dubbed, "Operation Patched Out." State police, along with federal and local authorities, arrested 50 people in what Col. Ann Assumpico said was the single largest takedown in state history.

According to a spokesperson for the R.I. Attorney General's Office, Mulcahey won't serve any time in prison. As part of a plea deal, he was given one year of probation and a one-year suspended sentence.

According to Smithfield Fire Chief, Robert Seltzer, Mulcahey was placed on administrative leave after his arrest. 

The town is reviewing evidence from the case before deciding if it will move for termination.
