According to the Denver Post, a man named Dillon Grobe was charged with federal drug trafficking on Thursday. The court record states that Grobe would sell different drugs on the dark web and send them to his clients via various US Postal Offices. Things were going just fine until one of Grobe’s clients turned out to be a DEA agent. The case reportedly involved several undercover law enforcement officers who managed to intercept the packages with various drugs.

During the operation, one of the co-conspirators actually shared an apartment with Grobe, discovering his AR-15 along with his darknet and cryptocurrency accounts

Earlier, U.Today reported that Bitcoin’s popularity with drug dealers is dwindling since they tend to switch to privacy coins.
