2 Australians Arrested for Drug Trafficking on the Darknet


Two Australian Citizen have admitted that they have used the Darknet forums to import dugs and other contraband into Australia for distribution. They managed to achieve the feat by getting help from the postal system. The name of the operation which helped crack the case is CROZET. The operation was carried out jointly by the Australian Federal Police (AFP) and the Australian Border Police. The lead was given to the Australian Border police after it was tipped off, and they intercepted international drug packages and forwarded them to the AFP for further investigation.

In the course of the operation, the investigators established that Li had rented a two-bedroom unit on Rowell Drive in Mernda. Li and McBeth reportedly used the apartment to store and package illicit drugs. After placing the pair under surveillance, the investigators reportedly saw them making trips to and from the apartment while carrying bags. The duo was also seen in post offices across Melbourne on different occasions. Mc Beth was reportedly seen in a supermarket while purchasing loads of toys, pillows, and cushions used by the pair to hide the drugs. On October 27, 2017, AFP agents executed search warrants on McBeth and Li’s homes in Mernda and Kew. They also executed a search warrant on the apartment used by the pair to store and package the drugs. The searches resulted in the seizure of a large quantity of drugs including 1 kg of crystal meth, 700 grams of Cocaine, 10 kg of MDMA, 1 kg of Cannabis, 1 kg of Ketamine, 10 vials of testosterone and 16 liters of 1,4 butanediol. The police also seized a large quantity of cash and a Lamborghini they believed to be the proceeds of crime.
