EncroChat: Coke Dealer Sentenced to Almost 13 Years in Prison

A drug dealer in the United Kingdom was sentenced to 12 years in prison for supplying cocaine, heroin, and cannabis, to people “across the country.”

Joseph Byrne, 44, of Knowsley, was sentenced to 12 years and nine months in prison after pleading guilty to conspiracy to supply class A and B drugs at Liverpool Crown Court.

“We will continue to keep this momentum going and pursue offenders who think they can lie undetected by using the darkweb, as we are taking action and bringing them to justice,” Merseyside Police Detective Inspector Chris Lowe said.

Merseyside Police arrested Byrne as a part of Operation Venetic; during the investigation into the encrypted communication service Encrochat, investigators identified Byrne as the person operating an Encrochat account under the username “Foxhedge.” Byrne used the account to facilitate the distribution of multiple kilograms of heroin, cocaine, and cannabis to buyers “from Liverpool to Wales.”

Police also learned that the dealer had grossed £349,000 within three months.

“Byrne’s guilty plea reinforces the strength of evidence we have in these type cases to convict those attempting to evade detection by utilizing encrypted devices. This latest sentencing, along with the other convictions that we have accomplished, highlights our success in arresting and convicting people,” Detective Inspector Chris Lowe said.

Remember the good old days of AB1.0? They had their own auto shop. 1.0 in my opinion, and I’ve been here since Ricky Ross, was the greatest market in DNM history. Unfortunately, AB1.0 became so prolific that it attracted the overwhelming attention on LE on behalf of the mighty tax payer’s dollar. AB.20 (not a variant of covid) stands to be the greatest market in DNM history to date, it will be the same equation, westernized LE against DeSnake, to the bloody end. It is an exciting time to be a Dnetizen as we face unprecedented times with new opportunities and a real chance at prosperity that’s been 0 so absent since the demise of AB1.0. If DeSnake can stay out of the Men’s bathhouse with Paris long enough to ensure the longevity of an AB that has become his own, we will see a new Golden Age of DNM. 🕍

Apparently it justified a response… based on the poor grammar, syntax and made up words with a violent, apish demeanor, I wonder what color the person was who took their “valuable” time to write this wonderful response ✌🏿

If only you knew how bad things really are..

Anyway it is fascinating to see how UK tirelessly manage to tackle darkweb offenders while leaving paki groomers alone. Same goes for Germany.
