A 19 year old from the United Kingdom was arrested and convicted for purchasing 1,000 euros worth of drugs on the Dark Web. The criminal in this case, Thomas Allen, had already made headlines when he was originally arrested. Authorities disclosed many facts about the case including his drug addicted past since the age of 12 and that he was both buying and selling the drugs.
Authorities caught onto Allen after intercepting a suspicious package that was found to contain 250 pills of ecstasy, a popular street drug also called MDMA. At that time, authorities received a search warrant for Allen’s home where he lived with family members.
It was immediately discovered that he was in the possession of even more ecstasy. He had kept it hidden inside a locked safe within a caravan located in the home’s garden area.
During the investigation, authorities found a mountain of evidence they used to convict Allen. His defense lawyer tried various excuses including that Allen didn’t think ecstasy was a Class A drug, he claimed he thought it was only a Class B drug. These excuses meant nothing to the court as they went on to hand down a 32 month jail sentence to the 19 year old.
Other charges were also involved in the case including marijuana possession, which he was also convicted of. Authorities are satisfied with the way this case turned out and are ready to bring even more Dark Web drug dealing criminals to justice.
Both law enforcement and the Dark Web criminals are always finding new ways to operate but in the end, law enforcement is on the winning team. Little by little, authorities are stopping these criminals and putting them exactly where they belong: in jail.
