BOSTON - A Quincy man was sentenced today for illegally possessing a loaded handgun while trafficking cocaine and fentanyl.

Rey David Fulcar, 38, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Denise J. Casper to eight years in prison and three years of supervised release. Fulcar pleaded guilty in December 2023 to one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition and two counts of possessing cocaine and fentanyl with the intent to distribute.

On July 23, 2022 Fulcar was observed conducting a drug deal in his car in Boston. The buyer was stopped by law enforcement and found with three bags of crack cocaine he had just bought from Fulcar. Fulcar was subsequently stopped as he drove away from the drug deal and attempted to flee during his arrest. Thirteen more bags of cocaine and fentanyl were found hidden inside Fulcar’s underwear. Additionally, five large shrink-wrapped packages containing suspected marijuana, as well as $1,141 cash were found inside Fulcar’s vehicle.

During a subsequent search of Fulcar’s Quincy apartment, fentanyl and a stash of cocaine in trafficking quantities were found along with a semi-automatic pistol loaded with seven rounds of ammunition. Also found was a handwritten list Fulcar maintained detailing drug customers, their orders and debts owed, a scale, cutting agent, packaging material and other drug paraphernalia in his kitchen.

Acting United States Attorney Joshua S. Levy; Stephen Belleau, Acting Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration, Boston Field Division; James M. Ferguson, Special Agent in Charge of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives, Boston Field Division; and Michael Cox, Commissioner of the Boston Police Department made the announcement today. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Fred M. Wyshak, III and John T. Dawley and of the Organized Crime & Gang Unit prosecuted the case.

The investigation was conducted by a multi-agency task force through the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF), a partnership between federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies. The principal mission of the OCDETF program is to identify, disrupt and dismantle the most serious drug trafficking, weapons trafficking, and money laundering organizations, and those primarily responsible for the nation’s illegal drug supply.
