    "First Nationwide Undercover Operation Targeting Darknet Vendors Results in Arrests of More Than 35 Individuals Selling Illicit Goods and the Seizure of Weapons, Drugs and More Than $23.6 Million..."

    The operation last a year and included agents from Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Secret Service, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and the U.S. Postal Service. Officials posed as money launderers on darknet market sites and were able to infiltrate the criminal enterprises, resulting in the seizure of “massive amounts” of narcotics, $20 million in cryptocurrencies, and $3.6 million in bills and gold bars.
