Three men have admitted using Apollon Market to sell potentially lethal drugs.
Jake L., Lee C., and Mandy C. L., all from West Yorkshire, provided Fentanyl via Apollon Market which is a dark web market that these men sell the drugs.
Regional head of investigations at NCA said the gang knew exactly how dangerous the drugs were, but they continued to be distributed worldwide via Apollon Market.
Leeds Crown Court heard the gang buy the drugs and posted them to customers throughout the UK, as well as to the US, Canada, Australia, Argentina and Singapore.
It is revealed that this gang buy the drugs from Samsara Market which is another dark web market on the internet.
Mandy was in a coma and diagnosed with a hypoxic brain injury. But despite his “near-death experience” he continued to supply the drugs.
Investigators also recovered a “to do” list in Jack L.’s car, which is told him to “find a new CF provider” and to pay his bill for electricity.
