Harry Sullivan, 22, was recently reported to have received a sentence based on the seizure of narcotics parcels delivered to his home in early 2021, according to current sources.

Sullivan’s Drug Importation: Guilty Plea and Dark Web Warning

On February 15, 2021, Sullivan received his first suspicious shipment from the Netherlands, which the Border Force seized. They found 250 ecstasy tablets there, which they confiscated. Officers recovered a second package intended to Sullivan just two weeks later, on March 3. 59 grams of MDMA powder were discovered when it was opened.

When Sullivan was found on March 12, his laptop and phone were taken away. Sullivan entered a guilty plea to two counts of importing class A narcotics at a court appearance on July 4, 2023 at the Oxford Magistrates’ Court. He was given a two-year jail term, with the first two years suspended. Sullivan received a suspended sentence, a £425 fine, and orders to participate in 46 days of rehabilitation.

Following a move by the Eastern Region Special Operations Unit (ERSOU), which delivered warning letters to those suspected of buying narcotics through the Dark Web, this sentence was handed down. These letters were delivered to a variety of UK locations that were thought to be receiving drug parcels.

Graham Paul, a detective inspector, stressed the possible risks of taking drugs obtained from the Dark Web. He forewarned that using medications purchased online frequently results in subpar quality and a possibility of fake components. Furthermore, he pointed out that anyone involved in illegal activity may become the targets of investigations and that the Dark Web is not as anonymous as some would think.

In the past 18 months, the Dark Web Intelligence, Collection, and Exploitation (DICE) unit of ERSOU has made a number of arrests. Investigators believe that these illegal chemicals were sent by Dark Web dealers, as they intercepted and recovered items worth more than £500,000.
