A federal jury in Portland, Oregon, found a Pennsylvania man guilty of distributing fentanyl that led to three overdoses, two of which resulted in death.

Henry Konah Koffie

According to an announcement by the US Attorney's Office for the District of Oregon, from at least May 2016 through July 2017, 37-year-old Henry Konah Koffie distributed large quantities of fentanyl through the now-defunct AlphaBay dark web marketplace under the "DNMKingpin" and "NarcoBoss" vendor profiles.
Law enforcement agencies in Portland became aware of Koffie's drug trafficking operation after a 19-year-old student at Portland State University overdosed on May 2, 2016, after taking a powder of suspected furanyl fentanyl. On being questioned, the student's supplier told the cops that he had purchased the fentanyl from DNMKingpin on AlphaBay.
A team of investigators from the Portland Police Bureau (PPB), HSI, and USPIS launched investigations into the drug trafficking operation in May 2017 after cops linked NarcoBoss to two fatal overdoses in Portland.
In the first case, on May 6, 2017, a 27-year-old in Portland overdosed and died after consuming fentanyl. The victim’s roommates told the cops that the victim had been ordering fentanyl from NarcoBoss on AlphaBay. One of the roommates admitted to the cops that he and the victim had ordered a gram of fentanyl from the vendor for $40 and that the fentanyl was mailed from Philadelphia.
On May 29, 2017, another 27-year-old overdosed and died. In the victim’s residence, the cops found a furanyl fentanyl vial as well as a notebook with login credentials to an AlphaBay account and a Bitcoin wallet. The officers also found a mailing envelope with a Philadelphia return address in the victim’s trash can.
The investigators made five undercover purchases of what NarcoBoss described as “China White Synthetic Heroin Fentanyl Mix,” between May 25 and June 21, 2017. All five drug packages mailed to the investigators by the vendor had return addresses in Philadelphia.
Investigators in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania intercepted several packages that resembled those shipped to law enforcement in Portland in the undercover purchases. The investigators reportedly found Koffie’s fingerprints on the furanyl fentanyl packages.
The investigators established that from July 2016 to June 16, 2017, NarcoBoss fulfilled at least 3,700 orders on AlphaBay. And in the process, distributed a total of more than 7 kilograms of fentanyl. The sales earned Koffie bitcoin worth at least $284,800 at the time.
The investigations also revealed that Koffie imported more than 14 packages of fentanyl from China and Hong Kong and had them shipped to his family members' residences. In May and June 2017, the CBP intercepted two such packages shipped to Koffie and seized a total of 500 grams of furanyl fentanyl.
On July 2017, the investigators executed search warrants on residences associated with Koffie. The searches resulted in the seizure of 500 grams of fentanyl, a binding agent for pill production, scales, electronic devices, and bank statements as well as records of the drug trafficking operation. The investigators also seized approximately $137,000 from Koffie’s bank accounts.
On August 1, 2017, a federal grand jury in the Western District of Pennsylvania filed a four-count indictment that charged Koffie with four counts of distributing furanyl fentanyl.
On September 20, 2017, a federal grand jury in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania charged Koffie with one count each of distributing a controlled substance and distributing a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a playground.
On April 21, 2021, a federal jury in Oregon charged Koffie with one count of distribution of a controlled substance resulting in serious bodily injury, two counts of distribution of a controlled substance resulting in death, and five counts of distribution of a controlled substance.
The federal jury in Oregon convicted Koffie of all the charges on March 7, 2023.
United States District Court Judge Michael W. Mosman will sentence Koffie on May 30, 2023. He faces a maximum sentence of life in prison, a $10 million fine, and three years of supervised release.
The two cases against the defendant in Pennsylvania are still pending.

larper !!!


damn thats wild asl


Out of all the substances you can hustle, you choose fentanyl? 🤔


That's my thing, why would a drug dealer out to make money distribute fentanyl? You won't have many repeat customers. I don't get it or why people sneak fentanyl into other drugs.


niggers? niggers?


yea that fucking crazy why choose fucking fentanyl out of all the substances


He should get life in jail no parole fucking scum


fr bruh hes a dickhead


ayo bb where are u?


Dear lord there are 1,000 lessons to be learned from this bust. The biggest is that 284k in funds / 3700 orders = $80 per order. That is 3,700 points of failure and the vendor is going to mess up at least a few of them. Using return addresses even in the same city where you actually live is bad. Having bulk shipments to family members from China is bad. Packing your own drugs = your fingerprints = bad. There's at least 10-15 more lessons on the top of my head from this one. So many lessons.


I agree with you 1000% for OPSec reasons I won't go in to details but if you gonna play the game you gonna stay ahead of the law and use this as what not to do


facts facts


Lesson #1 - Don’t be a colored Lesson #2 - Don’t distribute Fentanyl


I do wonder if this is the reason the rest of the best H vendors are going down also. Law enforcement has been pro actively purchasing H from all vendors in order to catch them all. It is about time all markets ban H.


Agreed. H is basically just a death sentence in the making. Nobody should even want to be part of contributing to that.


let them focus on these vendors while the rest steer clear :)


These vendors gonna learn that the hunt for fent is fucking real. These feds get harder than a priest when they find a fent case.




Lesson here is don't take fentanyl in general. And use fentanyl test strips on basically any drug you buy. If you're going to be taking anything opioid, keep some naloxone around it's available OTC in plenty of places. Best case scenario have someone else there but if you're alone it's still better to have the naloxone than not. It's like 40 us dollars. Could end up saving your life or someone elses.


$40 to save a Junkie ??? I just gave the mother fucker $10 an hour ago......


So the problem is N I G G E R S. Think how many lives would be saved if each person killed one nigger.


You Racist Bastard...... You Forgot the Mexicans !!!


What a fucking loser. Using the N word online. Enjoy your micropenis you bum.

A fent Junkie2023-03-10

They bought fentanyl roll the dice and lost he didn’t put the fent in fake pills! FREE Henry Koffie he was trying hustle like everyone else


People are going to take drugs weather you like it. There is no point in trying to prevent people from putting certain things in their body. This kid ordered fent and he got fent. He took the chance and paid the price of using fent. On the other hand I don't think fent should be sold on these sites because it can attract non drug users who try drugs because they can do it while comfortably sitting in their house on their device instead of actually pulling up on their local plug or trying to find one which even the thought of doing so scares most non-drug users. Keep in mind tho Henry Koffie was not the only person selling fent. Theres probably thousands of other places online you and these fent users could buy drugs from. IDK. He's just trying to run up a bag I'm assuming but there's so many other ways, just as efficient and somewhat less illegal, without killing people directly with your product ultiamtley drawing attention to you.


What you said. It's just not worth it

PLEASE READ2023-03-12

Fentanyl Lol..... Thats Fuck all.... Theres a Vendor on a Market currently selling Carfentanil which is 100 times stronger than Fentanyl... Which is 50 times stronger than Heroin.... And street Heroin is around 8-12% purity lol.... Carfentanil.... VERY VERY DANGEROUS !!!!

FUCK THE DEA2023-03-14

I feel bad for the poor guy. He was selling fentanyl as advertised. Probably was really stressed and had no other way to make money. Fuck the DEA and fuck the war on drugs


so kill people? justified.


I would've loved to have seen the armada that came to execute the search warrants. This guy is never seeing the light of day again. The people who sell F give absolutely 0 fucks about their future and well being and so are the people buying it. But fuck the government for pushing people to need this shit. Oxycontin isn't so bad now is it huh? The government has blood on their hands for keeping the war on drugs alive

Good riddance to all involved. to the worthless NlGGER that was selling fent online, to the pathetic losers that it killed, and the retarded pussy that snitched on himself and confessed he was selling DN fentantyl to college kids. Fentanyl is a blessing. It puts nigs behind bars and kills junkies. More nigs need to get involved in the fent game and more junkies need to die. Our declining country would benefit greatly from losing all the dead weight.


your a grade A Cunt pal what a fucking loser some neckbeard at his mommas house screaming the N word how original well done pal enjoy wanking to hentai

Grow some skin, pussy. Black people don't like niggers either... Why you so offended? my nigga! Yeah if all the blacks were gone half of the murder and rapes would disappear. weird!


I kind of understand why these white guys hate blacks so much, just look on social media. All you see are the most beautiful white women with black men as partners. I'd be upset too if all of my women didn't want my own kind and only wanted a specific race. If I was white I would be racist too ahahaha
