An alleged member of a Malden-based drug trafficking conspiracy has pleaded guilty to drug and gun charges, according to Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan. Brendan Joyner, 21, of Malden, was one of 11 people indicted last June in connection with the Maplewood Organization, which was the subject of raids in Malden and Lynn last year that resulted in the discovery of unregistered guns and various drugs. Last week Joyner pleaded guilty to charges of possession of a firearm with a defaced serial number, improper storage of a firearm, possession of ammunition, and possession of a Class B controlled substance, according to the district attorney’s office. Joyner will serve six months at the county House of Correction.
