Nearly a dozen reputed members of a Bloods-related street gang responsible for dealing drugs in and around Teaneck were rounded up by a crack team of investigators assembled by two of Bergen’s top lawmen.

With help from police in Teaneck, Prosecutor John L. Molinelli and Sheriff Leo P. McGuire sent undercover detectives onto the street there, as well as in Englewood and Bogota, where they said they bought crack, pot — even a handgun — from members of the Rollin’ 20’s. The Rollin’ 20’s are a subset of nationally known “super gang” The Bloods. Members of another Bloods subset, Sex Money Murder, were also taken into custody, Molinelli said this afternoon.

Both the prosecutor and the sheriff thanked Teaneck Police Chief Robert Wilson for his help in assigning officers to the task force and dispatching others to assist in the arrests.

McGuire also had a message: “ We will not let gangs set up shop here in Bergen. Beware criminals, we are ready and willing to take you down.”

The following suspected, confirmed or associated members of the Rollin’ 20’s Bloods were arrested and charged:

Maxwell Wilson – Member of the Bloods Rollin’ 20’s

Also arrested were three people with suspected Bloods ties. Their arrests weren’t related to the Rollin 20’s Bloods investigation, Molinelli said:

He was given a summons for drug paraphernalia, the prosecutor said.
