Prosecutors in Skinnskatteberg, Sweden, have charged a man and woman from Uttersberg for manufacturing and selling methamphetamine on the darkweb.
The man allegedly manufactured more than 1.5 kilograms of methamphetamine and 0.5 kilograms of amphetamine. The suspects allegedly sold methamphetamine on Flugsvamp 3.0 on at least 200 occasions.
Investigators discovered the drug trafficking operation after police found methamphetamine in a car during an unrelated traffic stop in Köping, Sweden. The methamphetamine in the car led the police to a farm in Skinnskatteberg where they found a drug laboratory.
Police Inspector Anna Söderhjelm:
“The man made crystallized meth, also known as crystal meth, in the laboratory. This is an unusual and very dangerous form of methamphetamine. It is very alarming and is above all deadly, because drugs are sold on hidden sites online and reach buyers completely without control over whether health conditions or age.”

Prosecutor Camilla Jegerhjelm:
“I believe that the crime should be headlined as a particularly serious drug crime because he has conducted a well-organized activity where there have been many transfers of dangerous preparations. He has also taken various measures to avoid discovery, such as using anonymization services on the internet.”

The woman is charged with drug crimes for possession of large amounts of drugs. She is not currently in detention.
Further details do not appear readily available.
