Massachusetts man sentenced to over five years on fentanyl and crack charges
PORTLAND, Maine - DEA New England Division Special Agent in Charge Brian D. Boyle and United States Attorney Halsey B. Frank announced that Fray Cayetano, 23, of Lawrence, Mass., was sentenced today in U.S. District Court by Judge D. Brock Hornby to 69 months in prison and three years of supervised release for distributing fentanyl and conspiring to distribute fentanyl and cocaine base, commonly known as, “crack.” Cayetano pled guilty on Oct. 17, 2018.
Court records reveal that on May 29 and Aug. 17, 2018, the defendant distributed fentanyl to a person working with federal law enforcement. After the second transaction, agents arrested Cayetano and a co-conspirator, Anthony Reynoso, and seized crack from Reynoso’s vehicle that the defendant intended to distribute.
Reynoso pled guilty to conspiracy and aiding and abetting the distribution of fentanyl on Oct. 29, 2018, and is awaiting sentencing.
This case was investigated by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the Kittery, York and Eliot police departments.
