A Florida man who used the abbreviation of his name as his vendor name has been sentenced to federal prison for drug trafficking offenses.

Chaloner Saintillus

Chaloner Saintillus, 35, of Florida, distributed a variety of opioids including fentanyl, heroin, oxycodone, and oxymorphone through the "chlnsaint" vendor profile on the now-defunct Empire Market. Between August 2019 and August 2020, chlnsaint fulfilled more than 1,100 orders on Empire Market. Saintillus also made direct deals via Wickr under the username "showstill."
Saintillus' drug trafficking was put to an end by investigations conducted by the Northern California Illicit Digital Economy (NCIDE) Task Force.
During the investigations, the investigators made 12 undercover purchases from chlnsaint. Surveillance images obtained from the post offices used to mail the drugs to the investigators resulted in the identification of Saintillus. Saintillus' debit card had also been used to pay for the postage used to mail some of the drug packages.
The investigators searched Saintillus' residence on October 26, 2020. They seized large quantities of drugs, approximately $25,000 in XRP, a loaded firearm, and over 2,000 rounds of ammunition in a suitcase.
Saintillus pleaded guilty to 12 counts of distributing controlled substances on April 6, 2023. He was sentenced to 10 years and one month in prison on January 5, 2024.

Man I've been following this one, how many people did this guy rat out to only get 10 years?


Not a single thought behind those eyes... Who is teaching these clowns how to access onion links?


This dude was obviously low-level and didn't have a real good foothold in the dark market, I could have done this. But props for at least making something happen.. I guess..


When you get to comfortable, you start making mistakes. You start going against certain things you vowed not too. Don't be this guy. We in this to get in and get out.

Not so serious side: One sided news articles about the darknet do reflect the positive value this tool is designed to bring to user. Serious side: The current epidemic which affects the US is a public health disaster which is not being managed correctly. No one expects a European country to have 12x or 14x overdose deaths counts as they are today. Vat (Value added text): Frony Smith may be my name here but I would not use it for criminal activities. Neither do criminal activities be my business.

Most men in jail are there for nonviolent drug crimes. Its sick, the government is just a gang of terrorists, that send kidnappers to kidnap you and lock you in a cage, these people are demonic psychos.

Too dumb to not use his real debit card to buy postage, and when busted #1 priority is to make sure everyone knows he’s got gold teeth… the absolute epitome of a nigger
