Danish law enforcement have arrested drug traffickers after an investigation that included surveilling the blockchain, according to the regional publication Berlingske. The Danish police’s cyber crime unit NC3 claim they have made arrests based on criminal activity tracked via bitcoin transactions.

The chief of the Danish cyber crime unit, Kim Aarenstrup, has revealed authorities in the region created a tracking system that analyzes bitcoin transactions. Aarenstrup details the tool has helped police with two narcotics convictions. One arrest took place in January when Danish police arrested a young man for purchasing ketamine, cocaine, and amphetamines on darknet marketplaces. (DNM)

Tracking tho blockchaion is useless all coins are reused so can always be tracked back to somewre illigal , ever in history..
you can alwys mix them , or go to a exchange , on the bitcoin network this look exactly the same ! Smiley

Expect to see some arrests soon as law enforcement agencies wrap up their investigations into several ransomware operations,if really they could track the transaction history.
