The FBI on Thursday announced that two men of Indiana have used a website on the darknet, The site helps in arranging the sale of Illegal Firearms to the  buyers but in this case they were undercover investigators in Garden State. The federal prosecutors announced that the investigation started in 2013 when Homeland started investigating the sales of the illegal fire arms in the websites which are only accessible from only the Tor’s Exit Nodes so the traffic can be completely anonymised.

Silk Road is one of the most popular market places for Drugs which got busted by the FBI in the year of 2013 websites similar to SilkRoad started to come up, one of them was AlphaBay which has the huge listing of around 250,000 types of drugs and toxic materials and more than 100,000 listings of Guns and Bombs when compared to SilkRoad it has only 14,000 listings.

Brunni was a fire arms dealer at the AlphaBay he got caught by making a deal with a federal officer for selling Ten Automatic rifles for $7,550.

When he and Albertson met undercover agents at a car stop in Phillipsburg on Sept. 9, the complaint cases, Albertson provided an agent a bag containing:

Three Glock Model 22 semi-automatic pistols
One Glock fourth-generation Model 17 pistol semi-automatic pistol
One Glock Model 20 semi-automatic pistol
One Glock fourth-generation Model 26 semi-automatic pistol
One Glock Model 30 semi-automatic pistol

The serial numbers on all of the handguns had stayed obliterated and were “indefinite,” according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. After agents seized the two men, detectives said they found a loaded Smith & Wesson Model 5906 semi-automatic weapon in the Mercedes near the driver’s seat.
