Mancunians smoked out in Silk Road arrests
Men arrested for online drug selling.
Three men from Manchester have been arrested for their involvement in an illegal drugs website.
The suspects all had roles in the Silk Road marketplace, a black market website that sold a massive range of illegal substances.
All the Mancs are in their 20’s, while a fourth suspect in his 50’s was in Devon.
“These arrests are just the start — there are many more to come”, said National Crime Agency boss Keith Bristow.
Silk Road used a virtual currency called bitcoin for users to buy drugs – one bitcoin was worth about £88.
The site was formed in 2011, and was closed by the FBI earlier this month after its founder was arrested in the US.
But reports suggest that a new version of the marketplace could be due to launch very soon.
