Allen D. Lint, a 38-year-old man from Tacoma, Washington has been sentenced today, 4th of December 2018, for distributing controlled substances between May of 2016 and September of 2017. More than 3600 lysergic acid (LSD) doses were found in Allen’s residence.
Most of the trafficking happened on a deep web marketplace website called Dream Market. U.S. Attorney Annette L. Hayes declared:
“This defendant was a 21st-century drug dealer. From the anonymity of the dark web, he filled more than 1700 drug orders for customers who paid with cryptocurrency. Despite his special encryption software and other efforts to hide his criminal conduct, law enforcement was able to unmask his identity and hold him to account.”
U.S. District Judge Benjamin H. Settle also imposed five years of supervision upon release, on top of the 5-year prison term.
Mr. Lint’s address has been revealed in multiple country-wide investigations, from as far away as Philadelphia. Furthermore, the mandated police officers found a variety of paraphernalia at his residence, including drugs, scales, bagging material, and customer records.
The defendant was indicted in April of 2018 and pleaded guilty in September of 2018.
