Australian Teen Arrested, Could face 25 years in Prison for Dark Net Drug Importing

An 18-year-old teen was busted with close to $60,000 in drugs he bought from dark web markets.

Raids were conducted on his home Wednesday in Hermit Park, Townsville, Australia. Reports say that a variety of drugs were found including meth, LSD, MDMA, mushrooms, hash, cannabis, and various prescription drugs. Also seized by Townsville Drug Squad was close to $10,000 in cash, leading to believe that the teen had been trafficking drugs for a while.

The Drug Squad’s Officer in Charge, Detective Senior Sgt. Mick Walker stated that police found a number of drugs that had been sourced from dark net.

“Police will be alleging he had 750g of cannabis, 28g of methamphetamine, 65 MDMA tablets, 154 LSD tablets, 17g of magic mushrooms, hash and numerous prescription drugs. Whether it has come internationally or locally, we are still investigating.  We have asked Border Force for some assistance there, but that will play its part in ongoing investigations,” he said.

Walker also said it was common for people to source drugs over the internet:

“It’s getting more and more common, which is going to make our job a lot harder, but we need to get smarter and it’s though the help from members of the public that we actually put on to this man. The offenders are getting younger and younger, they’re very computer savvy and they’ve got no problems in accessing the dark web.  Anonymity over the internet is what these people are looking for, so we’re experiencing more and more young people getting into the drug industry. They seem to have no comprehension of what trouble they are actually getting into, they think they’re anonymous, but they really aren’t.”

    Well this kid was, until some snitch turned on him

    Privileged individuals who have no fear of persecution by cultural power structures are usually content to conduct their affairs in the open. These people have a moral obligation to use their privilege to help those who’re marginalized and in the minority, use secure services, encryption and so on to provide cover traffic for the rest.

  2. you dont know if he was snitched on

  3. ”they think they’re anonymous, but they really aren’t.”

    Don’t create habits.
    Keep it to yourself.
    Use a solid(!) OP-Sec plan in the Dark net AND in the real life.

    This should help to avoid major attention from the gay narcos :)

    • The narcos aren’t gay!!! they are superheroes! they will save the world from themselves! save us from us! save us from us!
      heeeellllp!

      heh hehh hhehehehehe

  4. Well, let me use this shitty opportunity to place a shameless add. for your consideration & maby a wee chuckle.

    I burn your Addresses !!!

    Everyday, prior to dispatch & after processing, I routinely destroy by fire, any evidence of your ordering from me.

    In some instances, rogue mean people disguised as Cannabis people, will keep your addy’s for ulterior blackmailing purposes…

    In many more instances, laziness & lack of consideration for others are the guilty parties of drug dealers in general… Not only Pot folk necessarily…

    In lesser cases, misguidance is @ fault; & fall in this category as in the beginning, I kept all addy’s, one by one, everyday, in the spirit of sending Patrons whom might not have placed an order in some time, a promotional freebie as a reminder of their favorite farm stand…
    After collecting 8 note books of names & addresses, written small on both side of every page, I realized that, were the piggies to come in & eviscerate my life… All my Patrons whom I had all data on, would be in jeopardy of LE retribution!!!

    Ever since I realized this,I burnt them all, @ once & have been, every day before I leave for the many many post offices I use.

    Consideration of others IS the tap root of ALL respect…

    You, my Patrons, make my life worth living; I Love you all & will always look out for you with utmost respect.

    Shop fair trade -> shop @ the farm…

    Help the farmer live on his farm & continue to offer organic goods & character, to the good folk of this blessed Planet…

    You may rest @ ease when shopping with me.

    Thank you for your interest in my produce & services…
    Thank you for your trust & support…

    Respect.
    Peace.

    H.M.

    Got to much BTC & want to promote correct behavior while helping your Cannabis farmer & Hashish maker, on the sideside?

    hooooyeah….
    Be my guest & donate donate donate :;:)

      I’m bet your hash is good. But your post really misses the point of all this darknet and cryptocurrency revolution in the making, and is impertinent besides. We’re not here for you to tell us of your heroic exploits in keeping us safe. The point is not to have any need for trust in third parties. That is the revolution humans need.(Since they are inept at making laws that reflect real human needs.) And in great part that’s what this website and the darknet are about. Peer2peer and bitcoin-type currencies are poised to take this to considerable levels in the future and we are seeing the torturous birthpangs of it now.

  5. “We’re not here for you to tell us of your heroic exploits in keeping us safe. The point is not to have any need for trust in third parties.”
    Like a pimp with his girls. Genteel thuggery: “Other drug dealers will blackmail you. But not me, I’m not that kind of person.” LOL

  6. New to the DW game an would like some tips on staying anonymous
