A Glendale man who sold crystal meth and tablets laced with fentanyl on the dark web has been given a 42-month prison term.
According to court records mentioned in a statement last week from the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Justin Udvardi, 30, ran many dark net vendor pages under the name “TrapGod.”
He sold hundreds of narcotics, including crystal methamphetamine, MDMA, and fake oxycodone pills laced with fentanyl, to people all around the country for at least two years, according to the press release.
According to the press statement, he also sold stolen credit card data and supplies used by thieves to make fake identification documents.
The dark net, sometimes known as the dark web, is a section of the internet that houses hidden commercial websites or dark net markets.
According to federal investigators, a dark net market functions like a black market, selling or brokering deals involving both legal products and illegal ones, including drugs, guns, counterfeit money, credit card numbers that have been stolen, fake documents, and unlicensed pharmaceuticals.
According to the press release, undercover law enforcement officers in the eastern district of Virginia made several controlled transactions from Udvardi between September 2021 and September 2022 of either crystal meth or fake oxycodone tablets laced with fentanyl.
Together, these orders contained more than 250 fentanyl-containing pills and more than 120 grams of pure methamphetamine. According to authorities, Udvardi shipped the drugs from Arizona to locations in the Eastern District of Virginia using USPS Priority Mail envelopes.
