RALEIGH - United States Attorney Thomas G. Walker announced that in federal court today GREGORY KEITH CREARY, 38, of Raleigh, North Carolina was sentenced by United States District Judge Terrence W. Boyle to 46 months imprisonment, followed by three years of supervised release.

On January 3, 2013, CREARY pled guilty to possession of a stolen firearm and ammunition and aiding and abetting in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Sections 922(j), 924(a)(2) and 2.
