UK Fentanyl/Carfentanil ring admit Guilt

Three men who ran a dark web drug business face jail after admitting mailing fentanyls around the world. Lee Childs, 45, Jake Levene, 22, and Mandy Christopher Lowther, 21, ran their 'UKBargins' website during a spike in global deaths. ​Lowther was put into a coma by exposure to the drug, but recovered to continue the lucrative online trade with his conspirators. They made £165,000 in five months. The gang sold 2,853 items to 443 people worldwide, including 172 in Britain. Six of their customers are known to have died.

Police discovered 677g of pure carfentanil
Their website ran the message: “Welcome to UKBargins. Our products & their purity: Carfentanil – 99%. Butyr-Fenanyl – 98%. Furanyl-Fentanyl – 98%. 4-Fluroisobutyrfentanyl – 98%. U-47700 – 99%. We also have a Fentanyl HCL /// Manitol Mix & Furanyl-Fentany/// Mannitol Mix."

Police said they knew exactly how lethal the drugs were but continued to sell them.
