Portland, Maine: United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Ronald
Fuller, 63, of Boothbay Harbor, was sentenced today in United States District Court by Judge
George Z. Singal to a total of 5 years and 4 months imprisonment, consisting of 16 months
imprisonment for transporting a stolen vehicle in interstate commerce and an additional 4 years
imprisonment for violating conditions of supervised release. Fuller pleaded guilty to the stolen
vehicle offense on November 8, 2013, and also admitted on that date that he had violated the
conditions of his federal supervised release.

According to court documents, in April of 2013, Fuller, a suspect in numerous unsolved
burglaries in Boothbay Harbor and Wiscasset, stole a 1971 Chevrolet Malibu from Woolwich.
He drove the stolen car from Maine to Missouri, where he was found and arrested. Court records
show that at the time he committed this new offense, he was on federal supervised release
following a 1998 conviction for possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon.

The investigation was conducted by the Sagadahoc County Sheriff’s Department, the St.
Francois County (Missouri) Sheriff’s Department, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
