Lengthy prison sentences have been ordered to a father-son duo from the Orange County of California for allegedly selling Methamphetamine through a number of undisclosed dark web marketplaces or .onion links as per an announcement from the United States Attorney’s Office. In the early phase of this month, a jury has found the father guilty while on the 17th of June, the son has been pleaded guilty. As per the announcement from the Office of the U.S. Attorney for the Central District of California, one member of a father-and-son crew from Irvine has been pleaded guilty to one felony count of possession with intent to distribute Methamphetamine. It was just 11 days before that the Irvine man had entered his guilty plea while a federal jury in Santa Ana had found that the Irvine man’s co-defendant is guilty of two counts of attempted distribution of Methamphetamine and one count of possession with intent to distribute Methamphetamine.
The accused duo has been identified as William Thomas Glarner IV (34 Years Age) and his father William Thomas Glarner III of aged 61 years. The former has been admitted in the plea agreement that he had been selling drugs on the darkweb with his father while the latter has admitted that both of them had primarily sold Methamphetamine and had more than 1,500 completed transactions under their belts.
The investigation of the Orange County case began in March 2018 where the federal investigators have uncovered the evidence of the possible involvement of Glarner IV in the darkweb drug trafficking during an investigation into a different dark web vendor. Law enforcement in California has conducted a traffic stop and searched Glarner IV’s vehicle on 14th of March. The officers have located several pounds of a substance that has later been identified as Methamphetamine and the materials associated with drug traffickings such as a scale and plastic bags. The federals have also found Methamphetamine and similar drug trafficking equipment at the house of the accused.
While the Federals were investigating the son, they have identified that the father had conducted a similar traffic stop and found similar illegal substances and drug trafficking equipment in his car as well. At the least, one of the packages had a label on it that has matched the address of one of the duo’s customers on a dark web marketplace. Glarner III has fought the charges and lost the case as a jury found him guilty of three Methamphetamine distribution charges. The hearing of the duo lasted for four days. The evidence that was submitted to the court came from the surveillance tapes from January 2018 that captured Glarner III dropping packages off at a FedEx store and at a Los Alamitos Post Office. The father, Glarner III is scheduled to be sentenced in September. The latest information states that the sentencing date of Glarner IV has not yet been scheduled while both face between ten years and a lifetime in prison.
