Virginia Man Sentenced for Ordering and Selling 30k Fent Pills

A Virginia man who ordered roughly 30,000 fentanyl pills from California and sold them in Southwest Virginia was sentenced to 42 months in prison.
Zachary Ryan Hutton, 21, of Marion, Virginia, pleaded guilty earlier this year to knowingly possessing with the intent to distribute and distributing 400 grams or more of a mixture or substance containing fentanyl. A judge sentenced Hutton to 42 months in prison and ordered him to pay a $50,000 fine to the United States government.
“According to court documents, law enforcement began investigating a flood of illegal pills in Smyth County, Virginia that resembled pharmaceutical-grade oxycodone pills that were inconsistent in size, shape, and color, indicating they were counterfeit pills. The investigation revealed that the active ingredient in these “pressed” pills was fentanyl. Pills of this type are sometimes referred to as “Roxicodone,” “pressed,” or “M30” pills and often have an imprint of an “M” on one side and a “30” on the other side.”

The U.S. Postal Service–Office of Inspector General intercepted a package addressed to “Ryan Hutton” at his grandmother’s residence in June 2021. After opening the box, investigators discovered 561 grams of pressed fentanyl pills.

US Attorney Christopher R. Kavanaugh announced the sentence

In June 2021, the U.S. Postal Service–Office of Inspector General intercepted a package addressed to “Ryan Hutton” at the residence of Hutton’s grandmother in Marion. The package contained approximately 561 grams of pressed fentanyl pills.
Police conducted a controlled delivery of the package. During the subsequent search of the residence, investigators found Hutton in possession of 798 pressed fentanyl pills. During the investigation, law enforcement officers learned that Hutton had ordered: “fentanyl pills by mail for at least four months, received approximately 30,000 pills during that time frame, and paid a source in California $20,000 for the most recent package.”
In a sentencing memorandum, Hutton’s attorney wrote:
“In an effort to locate a supplier to support his habit, Mr. Hutton resorted to the use of social media. This, unsurprisingly, led to his solicitation and involvement in trafficking the pills upon a promise from the supplier to support his habit.”

The court documents either contain no information about the case or remain under seal. So I do not know any details. Seems like a lot of fentanyl though. Sentence seems shorter than I am accustomed to seeing.

Yes, very short sentence. Perhaps his age played a factor. Let this again be a lesson to all the newbs of DarkWeb: Use a drop, not your grandmothers house. Use PGP to encrypt messages, and use Tails / Whonix (Qubes) as an OS. I often find that the biggest difficulty in this industry is receiving / procuring / manufaturing the product. Sending is a breeze with proper practice in a heavy blue-box populated city, even with high volume. Work on your strategy and make sure that this part of your operation is fool-proof, or eventually, you will get fucked. Everything else, is common sense. Security is everything.


I know nobody would believe me, and why should they. I have gotten high as fuck with both those people on the picture. I have actually done cocaine with missy on the right while she is proof reading the DA's daily emails to send out.


from the memo - "Mr. Hutton has been informed that the Government will be moving for a sentence reduction under Rule 5K1.1 as a result of his substantial assistance that resulted in the successfulprosecution of at least four other individuals including a major Fentanyl supplier located on the West Coast."


This is why I wont touch "oxycodone" pills off of markets. They're all cartel fent bullshit. All these vendors turn into rats. I hope he gets a huge HIV nigger cock up his ass everyday.


From the memo: Ryan Hutton agrees to testify that Rapper and Co-conspirator "Fetty Wap" Willie Junior Maxwell II was the main supplier and local source for all of West Side LA, Ryan has purchased over 30 Kilos from "Fetty Wap" he solicicates...
