Portland, Maine:  United States Attorney Halsey B. Frank announced that Fray Cayetano, 23, of Lawrence, Massachusetts 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 October 17, 2018.

Court records reveal that on May 29 and August 17, 2018, the defendant distributed fentanyl to 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 October 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 and prosecuted as part of the Department of Justice’s Strategy to Combat the Opioid Epidemic.
