Feige Stern

I have been helping a friend research his family. It turns out that
his grandfather was a member of the Purple gang in Detroit, Michigan
in the 1930s. I googled his grandfather's name and came up with an
FBI file >from 1932 that contains his name on a list of people involved
with the purple gang and his police file number. Does anyone know if
I would be able to access the record? I am curious if anyone has
tried to get this type of record? I'd appreciate any ideas as to
where the records would be held.
Thanks in advance,
