A Cape Cod man, previously convicted of federal heroin distribution charges, was sentenced in federal court in Boston for possessing a loaded “ghost” gun. The defendant was on federal supervised release at the time of his arrest.
Krymeii Fray, 28, of Hyannis, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Allison D. Burroughs 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 local law enforcement. During a search of the vehicle, a Polymer 80 9mm firearm that was not commercially manufactured – commonly referred to as a “ghost” or kit firearm – 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:

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

Ferguson, Special Agent in Charge of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives; and Boston Police Commissioner Michael Cox made the announcement today. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Christopher J. Pohl and Lauren A. Graber of the Criminal Division prosecuted the case.
