#AceNewsReport – Mar.10: Acting U.S. Attorney Andrew Birge announced today that Michael Carlton Paiva, 30, of Norton Shores, was sentenced to 30 months’ imprisonment by Chief U.S. District Judge Robert J. Jonker for his role in a conspiracy to distribute controlled substances.
After an international law enforcement operation took down the dark web marketplace Silk Road 2.0, Paiva was identified as a purchaser of a significant quantity of various amphetamines and psychedelic compounds for distribution in the Western District of Michigan, including 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (“MDMA”), 2-(4-iodo-2,5-dimethoxyphenyl)-N-(2-methoxybenzyl) ethanamine hydrochloride (“25i-NBOMe”), 4-methyl-2,5-dimethoxyamphetamine (“DOM (STP)”), N,N-dimethyltryptamine (“DMT”), lysergic acid diethylamide (“LSD”), AL-LAD, mescaline, and liquid mushrooms.
The subsequent investigation revealed Paiva was ordering and importing drugs from different sources from at least 2013 until 2016. He converted cash into bitcoin in order to make purchases on the dark web. Paiva also distributed more common controlled substances, including heroin, cocaine, and methamphetamine.
” Drug traffickers who believe that the dark web and cryptocurrency will provide anonymity and shield them from the rule of law are sorely mistaken,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Birge.
