The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office accused three men who supposedly had laundered more than $2 million in crypto. According to the official statement, these three men were selling illegal drugs in the dark web, when the profit was sent, the trio withdrew it in large amounts of cash at ATMs in New York and New Jersey.
Chester Anderson, Jarrett Codd, and Ronald MacCarty launched their business in 2016. As we said before they sold counterfeit drugs to buyers using the return addresses. It means that the sender appeared as a New York City business, in some cases it could be Manhattan law firms.
The police have been tracking them down since 2017. When it finally seized them, the peacemakers were quite shocked for his crackdown may be considered as the largest drug pill seizure in the history of New Jersy state.
The items seized during the crackdown:
- Thousands of dollars in Bitcoin;
- 20,000 to 620,000 alprazolam tablets;
- 500 glassines of fentanyl-laced heroin;
- Gamma-hydroxybutyric acid.
The police said that all the pills were saved in orange buckets, the approximate value of them is $2-3 million. In addition, the authorities warned the criminals, including dark web operators and money launderers, that they are watching at them, citing:
“If you are engaging in illicit activity on the dark web, you are on notice: We know how to find you. We know how to put you out of business. And we know how to hold you criminally accountable.”
