Gang Member Sentenced to 178 Months for Racketeering and Related Crimes

Rollin' 60s Neighborhood Crips Member Convicted for Carjacking and Firearms Offenses

NEWARK, N.J. – Tyheim Terry, a member of the Rollin’ 60s Neighborhood Crips gang, was sentenced to 178 months in prison for his involvement in a racketeering conspiracy, U.S. Attorney Philip R. Sellinger announced today.

Terry, 25, also known as “Ty” or “Rollin’ Ty,” previously pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Susan D. Wigenton to charges including Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) conspiracy, carjacking, and brandishing a firearm in furtherance of the carjacking. Judge Wigenton delivered the sentence today in Newark federal court.

From 2015 through September 22, 2022, Terry was involved with the Rollin’ 60s Neighborhood Crips, a gang responsible for violent acts and drug distribution in New Jersey and beyond. On February 21, 2021, Terry, along with other gang members, attempted to carjack a victim. On April 5, 2021, he participated in shooting another victim. On April 11, 2021, Terry brandished a firearm and carjacked a third victim.

In addition to the prison sentence, Terry was given three years of supervised release.

U.S. Attorney Sellinger credited the successful investigation to the collaboration of several law enforcement agencies, including special agents of the Drug Enforcement Administration, IRS - Criminal Investigation, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the U.S. Marshals Service. Local police departments from Irvington, Newark, Bloomfield, East Orange, Elizabeth, Edison, and Spotswood, as well as the Essex County and Union County Prosecutor’s Offices, Essex County Sheriff’s Office, New Jersey State Police, and the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation Fugitive and Missing Person Task Force also contributed.

This case is part of an Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF) investigation, which aims to dismantle high-level criminal organizations through a collaborative, multi-agency approach. More information about OCDETF can be found at
