Bavarian police searched more apartments in the Passau district as a part of an ongoing investigation into darkweb drug traffickers in the area.
On April 17, 2022, Bavarian police searched apartments in Aldersbach and questioned another suspect as a part of a “major police operation.” The actions are related to the arrests of two suspected darkweb vendors in the Deggendorf district in April 2022.
According to the Bavarian State Criminal Police Office, police arrested a 31-year-old man and a 25-year-old man during the searches in April. The 31-year-old allegedly sold marijuana through the darkweb. The 25-year-old allegedly purchased at least ten kilograms of marijuana from a darkweb vendor to resell to a “previously unknown” customer.
During the searches of the apartments in Deggendorf, police found 400 opioid pills, marijuana, assorted narcotics, anabolic steroids, thousands of euros, and several mobile phones and tablets.
Since then, police identified another suspect, a 22-year-old living in Aldersbach.
A police spokesperson confirmed that the police operation on June 17 was linked to the raids in April but did not provide any further information.
