A 22-year-old student from Bayreuth, Germany has been providing the Bavarian district of Kulmbach with both marijuana and cocaine. He has been arrested and faces four years in prison for use and distribution.
His buyer, another 21-year-old Kulmbacher was also convicted of a juvenile sentence of four years and ten months.
The 22-year-old, who most recently lived in the Red Hill district, made a confession in his trial and claimed that his drug addiction was the primary motive: “I used cocaine to increase performance, and then I smoked the marijuana to come back down,” he explained. The marijuana and the cocaine he had ordered from the Darknet have been paid with the digital currency Bitcoin. The narcotics were delivered by mail.
“You have to think of it as a normal internet marketplace, like an Amazon for drugs.”
The student claims to have had only one buyer – a 21-year-old Kulmbacher. The criminal court had bargained against the customer only last Friday, 23rd of November 2018. At the time, the young Kulmbacher confessed to having bought around four kilos of marijuana and ten grams of cocaine from the 22-year-old student. His case was also about financing his drug addiction. The Kulmbacher buyer came several times in the spring of 2018 to Bayreuth, where different Whatsapp arrangements have been made.
While the buyer had spoken in his process of 14 deliveries with a total of just over four kilos, the seller now said that it had been a little less quantity, about three and a half kilograms. He also added that in that period he abused narcotics heavily.
“I’ve smoked so much, you’re not fit in your head, and the bad thing is that you do not realize it’s all about focusing your life on drugs.”
The drug bust happened in April when police officers controlled a motorist who was on his way back from a place in the Kulmbach district with 120 grams of marijuana on board. The driver was getting the marijuana from the 21-year-old Kulmbacher and who usually chauffeured him to the deals with the 22-year-old student from Bayreuth.
The chauffeur got paid with drugs for his driving services, and he also provided his supplier with his apartment as a “bunker.”
In the trial against his buyer last week, the 22-year-old had not wanted to testify. The customer got, as reported, a juvenile sentence of four years and ten months. In which, however, an open juvenile sentence of two years were included. The majority of the detention period will be spent in a drug rehabilitation center.
The driver is also facing prosecution.
