Three men from Orange County are facing charges after an investigation led authorities to believe they are responsible for selling fentanyl-based fabricated pills made to look like Oxycodone and trick the buyer into thinking their purchases were authentic. The alleged sales took place on the darknet.

The darknet is a hidden portion of the internet that is unavailable unless using specific software to gain access. Though many people associate it with illegal activities most of the content there is reportedly academic information published by universities, databases, and other resources not found through popularly used browsers.

In December 2017 an online store opened through hosts on the darknet such as “Dream Market” and began operating under the profile name of Oxygod. The business, which as of April 4 was still reported as accessible, allegedly serves as an outlet for mail order purchases of the pharmaceutical opioid pain medication Oxycodone.

A police officer for the New York Police Department was fired for a positive drug test result showing methamphetamines in his system, but the cop has denied the allegations and stated the results were compromised by his apparel.

Nearly 20 years ago the NYPD began implementing drug testing through collection of hair instead of the previously used urine tests. This method was chosen as the best way to ensure officers were not under the influence of narcotics due to the fact that testing the hair is reportedly more reliable, can detect substances in the system for a much longer period, and are less costly than urine sample tests.

33-year-old NYPD officer Brian Quire served on the Manhattan warrant squad and held a position with the police department for 12 years. Quire earned the nickname “Legs” by his colleagues due to his regular choice of shorts for his attire.
