According to the Brandenburg Police Department’s announcement, authorities arrested a 29-year-old man suspected of running a vendor shop on the dark net.

The Prosecutor’s Office in Cottbus said the vendor offered prescription drugs and other substances for his customers. Law enforcement authorities also added the alleged shop ran for about a year and payments were made exclusively in BTC. When investigators traced back the payment history of the 29-year-old, they found multiple bitcoin payments, some of them in the five-figure Euro range.

Since the statement was quite brief, we do not know further details, such as the exact name or pseudo name of the vendor.

There was a similar case recently where German special forces arrested an alleged dark net vendor. Law enforcement authorities performed an early morning raid on the 29-year-old man’s home in Dinslaken on October 14. A spokesman for the prosecutor’s office said the Special Task Force was called in based on a potential firearm threat. Police believed the suspect is armed and dangerous, however, a police spokesman from Konstanz stated after the raid that the man’s arrest was peaceful. He was detained without resistance.

The 29-year-old is suspected of running a huge scale vendor shop on the dark net.
