Dark web drug bust NYC

A person who sold drugs on the dark web has been caught with a USB drive that held records of 145 drug sales. The legal team in the Netherlands is asking for an eight-year prison sentence, calling this person a major dark web seller.

Back in 2017, a man from Heerhugowaard got five and a half years in prison for selling ecstasy pills on dark web markets. Now, he faces even more prison time because investigators found a USB drive with records of his drug dealing.

In 2019, authorities looked into him hoping to find evidence of money laundering. They searched his prison cell and his girlfriend’s house in Alkmaar. The USB drive turned up during the search of the girlfriend’s house.

The police found the password for the encrypted USB written in a notebook in the defendant’s prison cell. When they unlocked the drive, they found info about the platform he used to sell various illegal drugs. The USB had records for almost 100,000 ecstasy pills, 22.5 kilograms of MDMA, 10 kilograms of amphetamine, 10,000 2-CB pills, and 2.6 kilograms of cocaine. Over August 2017 to March 2018, he sent out 145 drug orders to 30 countries, totaling 90 kilograms of drugs.

The legal team wants the defendant’s girlfriend, who is 30, to do 100 hours of community service. They found 39 ecstasy pills and a weapon that looked like a gun with her. They say she was living off her boyfriend’s earnings, but she claims she earned her money from babysitting, although she wouldn’t say which families she babysat for.

For the 33-year-old drug dealer, the prosecution is asking for an eight-year prison sentence, pointing to aggravating circumstances and the fact that he’s done this before.
