Justin Udvardi, a 30-year-old from Arizona, operated under the alias “TrapGod” and carried out his clandestine business for a minimum of two years, selling these hazardous substances to clients nationwide. But the extent of his criminal enterprise didn’t end with drug trafficking. Court filings also detail Udvardi’s involvement in disseminating stolen credit card data and providing resources that could be utilized in the fabrication of fraudulent identification documentation.

Over a span of a year, from September 2021 to September 2022, covert agents from the Eastern District of Virginia managed to purchase drugs from Udvardi on multiple occasions. These covert operations were facilitated through dark web conduits like Wickr and ASAP. In total, the undercover officers secured 120 grams of methamphetamine and a staggering count of more than 250 pills, which, unbeknownst to many users, were laced with the deadly opioid fentanyl.

Fentanyl is an extremely powerful synthetic opioid, significantly more potent than both morphine and heroin. Just a small amount can lead to lethal overdoses. Due to its high potency, illegally distributing and selling fentanyl is a grave concern. Udvardi’s imprisonment is a testament to the U.S. justice system’s dedication to combatting the illicit distribution of this drug, especially in light of the widespread opioid crisis affecting many regions of the nation.
