Several men were arrested and charged today for operating a Malden-based drug trafficking operation, possessing illegal firearms, including an assault weapon, and distributing marijuana with a street value of more than $1 million, Middlesex District Attorney Gerry Leone and Malden Police Acting Chief Doug Perrigo informed the public today.
The arrests today were a result of an investigation into a drug organization that trafficked more than 400 pounds of marijuana into Malden from Northern California.
Early this morning nine search warrants were executed at addresses associated with the organization and officials today arrested and charged the following defendants. The defendants were arraigned today before Judge Matthew Machera in Malden District Court.

“This is a cash and carry, gun-toting illegal cross-country drug operation that seriously compromised safety in the city of Malden,” District Attorney Leone said. “I commend the collaborative work of many agencies that led to the arrests today, especially the Malden Police and Massachusetts State Police for this months-long investigation, including a wiretap, that has removed illegal guns and drugs from the streets of Malden.”
In October 2012 State Police Detectives assigned to the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office, working with Malden Police and the United States Postal Inspectors, launched an investigation into the Maplewood Organization, a Malden-based group allegedly involved in interstate drug trafficking.
On Oct. 27, 2012, police intercepted a package for the organization that contained more than 12 pounds of high grade marijuana that had been carefully packaged and sealed into one pound packages for distribution. Police identified 50 such packages on route to the Maplewood organization.
In total, the organization is alleged to have trafficked at least 400 pounds of marijuana, with a street value of more than $1 million.
On March 23, 2013, Postal Inspectors seized another shipment of marijuana on route to the Maplewood Operation. Defendant Reginald Miller who was the alleged recipient of the drugs allegedly broke into his neighbor’s home, believing the drugs had been stolen. He was subsequently arrested and charged with breaking and entering.
Today, police executed several search warrants and arrested the six other individuals in connection to this drug trafficking operation.
During these searches of seven locations today in Malden police recovered:
A 9 mm tek-nine assault weapon
.44 Magnum revolver
.22 caliber semi-automatic pistol
.40 caliber Glock semi-automatic pistol
.45 caliber semi-automatic pistol
Kel-Tec semi-automatic pistol
Large quantities of ammunition
Illegal large capacity magazines
Several bags of Marijuana
Drug packaging materials and digital scales
Bullet proof vest
None of the defendants is licensed to carry a firearm.
These charges are allegations and the defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
The case is being investigated by State Police, US Postal Inspectors, Malden Police and the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office. The following agencies assisted in the investigation: Saugus Police, Lynn Police, Homeland Security Investigators, Essex District Attorney’s Office, MBTA Transit police, and State Police Gang Unit.
The case is being prosecuted by Assistant District Attorneys David Solet and Stephen Gilpatric.
Malden Police Officers join others in visiting
Detective J.P. Kelley and Officer Scott Carroll
traveled to Virginia with over 250
Police Officers, Firefighters, and EMTs, from across
New England and beyond, for the Christmas Wish Visit
of 5 year old Nathan Norman. Nathan is fighting
cancer and you can read more about this remarkable
and brave little boy by clicking on the links below.
While in formation Nathan's father said a prayer for
all Police Officers for all we do, which was very
much appreciated. Happy Holidays to all and thanks
to all the departments for all their support for
this special boy and his family.
The Malden Police Department has
recently incorporated the innovative use of YouTube
videos in an effort to resolve criminal cases.
YouTube is a very simple and cost effective way to
broadcast video to the public asking for assistance in
identifying individuals to crack unresolved offenses.
Recently, security cameras have been installed
throughout Malden in an effort to both deter crime and
to catch perpetrators. Video from the cameras is now
being uploaded to the Police Department’s YouTube
channel with a description of the person being sought
along with a number to call. Tips may also be logged in
at the Police Department website at
and can be anonymous if the caller prefers. Residents
can also follow along on Twitter to receive updates of
when new videos are uploaded.
“Traditionally we have only used newspapers and
television news outlets to request the public’s
assistance in solving crimes. By using the Internet,
especially social media sites like YouTube, we are able
to access a larger, more diverse population and provide
them with a continuous opportunity to view crime video
that they may have otherwise missed from traditional
news outlets,” said Detective Pete Mitchell.
Mayor Gary Christenson is thrilled with the recognition
Malden is receiving as it has been his priority to
communicate with residents in every way possible --
through the City website, FaceBook, Flickr, online
forums and YouTube. “Catching criminals by posting them
in the act on YouTube, a medium used by many, is an
ingenious idea,” said Mayor Christenson. “I look forward
to our office continuing to collaborate with Chief
Holland and the Malden Police Department in using Social
Media in other ways to address public safety.”
Energy is a company who has registered with the city
informing they will be in various residential areas
going door to door offering energy audits. The
company registers daily with the Police department,
and employees should have identification clearly
visible on their person. If you have any questions

ad-free and BAIR Analytics does not sell the data to
third party vendors, thus the agency remains in
complete control over their data. “We wanted to do

available for FREE on the App Store.
The Malden Police Department is
requesting assistance from the public in reporting
any suspicious activity, especially in residential
neighborhoods. Due to an uptick in house
breaks we are asking residents to be extra vigilant
in observing people hanging around neighborhoods
either walking on foot or in vehicles circling the
area. Often times, suspects will work in
tandem with a lookout person and/or a getaway
vehicle. If your safety is not in jeopardy, a
detailed description of the person or vehicle would
be most helpful.
Please dial 9-1-1 if you
observe anything unusual.

MPD Launches Anonymous Tip Program 1/12/2010
The Malden Police Department is launching tip411, an internet based tool that enables the public to
text message an anonymous tip to police, and lets the police respond back creating a two way
anonymous “chat”. Reserved exclusively for Public Safety purposes and powered by CitizenObserver, a St. Paul MN
company, tip411 puts a powerful new crime fighting tool into the hands of our community for all ages
“We’re proud to be part of a national program that agencies in over 27 States are currently launching.
This new capability will help our citizens play an active role in keeping neighborhoods safer, it will
engage younger folks in the process, and it will save our agency time and resources. “
Anyone with a cell phone can now send an anonymous tip to the Malden Police by texting
the word MALDEN and the tip information to 847411 (tip411).
Anonymous web tips can also be submitted right from this website by following this link.
It's 100% anonymous. CitizenObserver’s technology removes all identifying information before the
Police Department receives it so there’s no way to identify the sender.
Use tip411 primarily for non-emergency tips. Texting to tip411 is NOT an alternative to dialing 9-1-1. In an emergency, call 9-1-1.
"Code Red" Telephone Emergency Notification Service 3/5/2009
The City of Malden has implemented the "CodeRED" high-speed telephone emergency notification system. The CodeRED system gives us the ability to deliver pre-recorded emergency telephone notification/information messages to targeted areas or the entire city at a rate of up to 60,000 calls per hour. The system will only be used for emergency purposes. Examples of when the Code Red system may be utilized include: missing children, fires, power outages, chemical spills, and evacuation notices. This system is only as good as the telephone database supporting it. If your phone number is not in the database, you will not be called.
To ensure no one is omitted, we urge all individuals and businesses to log onto the Malden Police Departments website, www.maldenpd.com and follow the link to the "CodeRED Residential and Business Data Collection" page. Those without Internet access may send a letter to David Urban, Malden Police Department, 200 Pleasant Street, Malden, MA. 02148, to submit their information. Required information includes first and last name, street address (physical address, no P.O. boxes), city, state, zip code, and primary phone number, additional phone numbers (optional).
No one should automatically assume his or her phone number is included. All businesses should register, as well as all individuals who have unlisted phone numbers, who have changed their phone number or address within the last year, and who use a cellular phone as their primary home phone.
The CodeRED system is a geographical based notification system, which means street addresses are needed to select which phone numbers will receive emergency notification calls in any given situation. The system works fine for cell phones too, but a street address is required. People who have recently moved but kept the same listed or unlisted phone number also need to change their address in the database.
Sign up to receive free Amber Alerts on your cellular phone. When a child is abducted and an Amber Alert is broadcast in your area, you can be notified by text message. Visit www.wirelessamberalerts.org for more information and to sign-up. This initiative is sponsored by the Department of Justice and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
