In what is believed to be the first fentanyl distribution case using the dark web and crypto currency in the Southwest Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) Region, a federal judge in San Antonio today sentenced 30-year-old Alaa Mohammed Allawi to 30 years in federal prison for distributing approximately 245 kilograms of fentanyl, cocaine, methamphetamine, oxycodone and Xanax.  The distribution of fentanyl-laced oxycodone pills, through the use of the dark web and crypto currency, resulted in the overdose death of a U.S. Marine stationed at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, and serious bodily injury to two Grand Forks, North Dakota, residents.
