6th Defendant Pleads Guilty in Connection to Malden’s Maplewood Organization

The defendant pleaded guilty to seven charges, including four involving firearms, authorities said.

A sixth defendant has pleaded guilty in connection to the Malden-based, drug-trafficking operation known as the Maplewood Organization, according to authorities.

Terrell Rollin-Sutton, 22, of Malden, pleaded guilty in Middlesex Superior Court in Woburn to the following charges: possession of a large capacity weapon, possession of a large capacity feeding device, improper storage of a large capacity weapon, possession of ammunition, breaking and entering into a building with the intent to commit a felony, attempt to commit larceny in a building and possession with intent to distribute a Class D substance.


Middlesex Superior Court Judge S. Jane Haggerty sentenced Rollin-Sutton to two-and-a-half years in state prison on the firearm charges with three years of probation to be served following on the remaining charges, according to the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office.

Rollin-Sutton was one of 11 defendants arrested last year in connection to the Maplewood Organization. Five others have pleaded guilty; five cases are pending.

According to authorities, the Maplewood Organization trafficked at least 400 pounds of marijuana into Malden from Northern California. The marijuana had a street value of over $1 million, authorities said.
