Six individuals in an international drug trafficking organization have been indicted for their involvement in manufacturing fake prescription drugs made from fentanyl, which were then distributed in Utah and throughout the US to customers who had ordered pills via dark net online stores. The organization purchased pill presses, dyes and stamps to mark pills and match those of legitimate pharmaceutical drugs, and inert pill ingredients, such as binding agents and colors. Some items were purchased legally and others, such as fentanyl and alprazolam, were imported into the US illegally, including from China. The ingredients were then pressed into pills that had the appearance of legitimate pharmaceuticals. The fake oxycodone-type pills and the counterfeit alprazolam tablets were sold on the dark net at a significant profit, notes a US Department of Justice press release. Court documents indicate the enterprise sold hundreds of thousands of pills.
