BOSTON (WBSM) — A Cape Cod man, previously convicted of federal heroin distribution charges, was sentenced today in federal court in Boston for possessing a loaded "ghost gun."

Krymeii Fray, 28, of Hyannis, was sentenced to 30 months in prison and three years of supervised release.

In October 2023, Fray pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of ammunition.

On March 24, 2023, at 2:15 a.m., Fray's vehicle was stopped on Blue Hill Avenue in Boston by police. During a search of the vehicle, a Polymer 80 9mm "ghost gun" loaded with seven rounds of ammunition was recovered from under Fray's seat.

Also seized was a live loose round of ammunition found near the gun, as well as a spent shell casing found in the trunk.

At the time of his arrest, Fray was on supervised release from an earlier federal conviction for conspiracy to distribute heroin.
