Two American men were arrested, accused of “multimillion-dollar drug distribution conspiracy on the dark web”, On Thursday (11). According to the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), men would have used a marketplace on the dark web, in addition to an encrypted messaging service called Wickr, to sell counterfeit Adderall.
Adderall is an amphetamine-based stimulant, very popular in the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). In Brazil, the drug is banned by Anvisa, but in the USA it is legal. However, according to the DOJ, cybercriminals were advertising Adderall, but they were delivering a counterfeit drug, with a different chemical formula, based on methamphetamine.
Kevin and Eric, (31 and 35 years old respectively), testified to the U.S. Department of Justice on Friday (12). In addition to prisons, local police also seized more than “$ 5 million in assets allegedly linked to drug trafficking activity”.
“Kevin […], 31, and Eric […], 35, both from Katy [Texas, EUA], were charged in a complaint filed in the Western Tennessee District. Kevin is accused of conspiracy and illegal distribution of controlled substances, and Eric is accused of conspiracy. Kevin and Eric were arrested yesterday and made their first appearance this afternoon, ”writes the department in a press release, published on Friday (12).
