Three people are being accused of creating fake airline employee identification cards in order to fly without having to buy tickets.

In early May of 2017, a man allegedly tried to take a flight out of Los Angeles International Airport on Spirit Airlines and when he was asked for identification he produced what is suspected as a manufactured card claiming that he is an employee of Mesa Airlines.

Upon investigation, the authorities purport that the man, identified as 25-year-old Alphonso Lloyd, was connected with two other suspects in the matter.

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.
