Juskevicius, 24, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute cocaine, admitting he sold about eight pounds of it, court records show. He will be placed on supervised release for three years when he leaves prison.

As part of his agreement, Juskevicius will forfeit $200,000 in drug profits. Six counts against him were dropped.

The FBI began investigating him in May 2017 and arranged for a drug shipment through the postal service. The package contained about nine grams of cocaine and was mailed from an address in Miami.

Dacandyman, according to Reddit users, sold primarily on the Alphabay and Hansa darkweb marketplaces.

The drugs were advertised as “AMAZING Fishscale Colombian Cocaine – with USPS tracking,” according to court documents.

Investigators determined which post office the package was mailed from. Postal inspectors learned that nine other similar packages were mailed that day to other cities, including Brooklyn, New York; Atlanta, Georgia; and Reno, Nevada.

Post office surveillance video showed the person mailing the packages leaving in a car whose license was registered to Juskevicius. Agents in Kansas City then made a second drug purchase in June 2017, according to court documents.

U.S. District Judge Howard F. Sachs recommended Juskevicius be designated to a facility in South Florida.
