“Bestman365,” a heroin dealer, has been sentenced to prison.
According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Maryland, a man, known as seller Bestman365, has been sentenced to seven years in federal prison for promoting and trafficking heroin on the dark web.
Russell Ramseur, 44, of Largo, was sentenced to five years of supervised release on Tuesday. In addition to his prison sentence for conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute at least one kilogram of heroin and possession with intent to distribute heroin.
Ramseur was known on the darkweb on the following accounts:
According to a plea deal, Ramseur was a registered seller on a dark net marketplace where he marketed the sale of heroin to the general public. According to a press announcement, he accepted Bitcoin orders and collected money from consumers.
Prosecutors claimed Ramseur and his co-conspirators trafficked heroin from Capitol Heights, Maryland, to consumers throughout the country.
At least nine parcels carrying heroin were intercepted or received by mail throughout the inquiry.
According to the press release, Ramseur and his co-conspirators are suspected of distributing between one and three kilos of heroin through the dark net marketplace.
Law enforcement officers serving a search warrant at the Greenbelt home of one of Ramseur’s associates recovered $13,000 in cash from a safe, which Ramseur claimed was from his heroin distribution.
