    National Steroid Ring Indicted In Ohio - qu4ntum Busted

    BRUNSWICK, OH — Three men have been charged with distributing anabolic steroids through the dark web, the Department of Justice announced. The men used the U.S. Post Office and other mail carriers to ship the drugs.

    Ronald Roginsky, 52, from Brunswick, John Ambrose, 40, from Chicago, and Eric Angle, 52,from Wexford, Pennsylvania, are named in the four-count indictment. All three men are charged with one count of conspiracy to distribute controlled substances.

    According to the indictment, Roginsky, Ambrose and Angle were part of the "qu4ntum" drug trafficking organization, which ran several dark net vendor accounts on AlphaBay, Dream Market, Wall Street and other dark net marketplaces.

    Qu4ntum would import steroids from China and other nations and then distribute them to locations throughout the U.S., the indictment said. They would use the U.S. Postal Service, third-party shipping companies and face-to-face transactions to move the steroids, the indictment said. Their sales were done in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency, the indictment noted.

    To hide the source of the shipments, qu4ntum would use P.O. boxes held under fake names, the indictment said.

    Some of these guys end up selling narcos and wondered if that may have been part of it. Why don't LE worry about opiates and meth and all that bs?

    Low level guys I bet get pinched by just being stupid. Big guys get it by a snitch. There has to be smoke in the air for a bust and a solid lock down case. That starts and ends with a snitch and probably inside.

    I saw a doc on coke and the popo used disgruntled former workers. The one dude wasn't paid so he took the agents up stream and showed them everything.
