TRURO — A Truro man was arrested Wednesday on charges of illegally selling at least 55 firearms in just four months last year on Cape Cod.

The U.S. Attorney's Office said 59-year-old James McNulty was indicted on one count of dealing in firearms without a license.

From around January to April 2021, McNulty allegedly offered and sold more than 50 firearms on the cape, according to the indictment.

McNulty does not have a license allowing him to import, manufacture, or deal firearms.

He was released on conditions after appearing in U.S. District Court in Boston on Wednesday afternoon.

If convicted, McNulty could face up to five years in prison, three years of supervised release and a $250,000 fine.

Abandoned North Truro Military Base is a Peek Into 1950s Cape Cod

After closing in 1994, the North Truro Air Force Base has been left untouched. Decay, destruction and graffiti have taken over many of the buildings, but some family belongings can still be spotted. The area is now in the possession of the National Parks Service, and according to an update on Atlas Obscura from June 2021, the base had been fenced off and locked tight to visitors hoping to get a glimpse inside the historical Cape Cod site. Luckily, YouTuber @Exploring With Josh took viewers inside the base back in 2015, so we can still take a peek inside the long-abandoned property.
