While arresting three suspects for drug-related crimes, two Long Island police officers were in need of medical attention after being exposed to one of the substances.

Early Saturday morning, around 12:40 am, patrolling officers saw a Toyota sitting in the parking lot of a movie theater and they went up to the vehicle to find out what was going on.

When they approached the vehicle they reportedly found 31-year-old David Lyons sitting in the driver’s seat with his assumed partner, 31-year-old Grace Lyons in the passenger seat next to him. A man identified as 36-year-old Deron Barnes was allegedly an additional passenger.

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.
