SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A man plead guilty after authorities said he was found distributing marijuana to customers through the darkweb.
On Monday, 29-year-old Eric Friccero pleaded guilty with an intent to sell drugs.
According to the Department of Justice, Friccero operated under the “BudgetBudsExpress” and distributed marijuana through the darkweb.
Back in January, the Northern California Illicit Digital Economy Task Force searched the 29-year old’s home. Inside, NCIDE located the sales on the darkweb, along with bitcoin and cash.
A hearing for Friccero is set for Aug. 17. He faces a maximum statutory penalty of 20 years in prison and a $1 million fine.
