There is no guarantee of anonymity for Australian buyers and sellers of illicit drugs on the TOR-encrypted e-commerce platform Silk Road, according to the Australian Federal Police and Australian Customers and Border Protection.

The pair released a joint statement Wednesday pointing to the arrest of one Melbourne man who allegedly imported narcotics via Silk Road.

*There were no Australian arrests, however the indictment pointed to funds funnelled through that operation that were sourced from Australia via Western Union.*

Ladies and gentlemen, this is how you get arrested!

That's one incident involving the DEA.. however the linked media release states:

The warning follows the recent arrest of a Melbourne man who allegedly imported narcotics into Australia via Silk Road. The man was charged with 10 offences relating to the importation, trafficking and possession of narcotics and prohibited weapons.

I already can see some pranksters ordering narcotics on SR as Christmas gift for Australian members of parliament.

Obviously, it takes someone so simple as a politician to use drugs at all; normal people enjoy their brain without crutches.

Has anyone ever been arrested for buying or selling drugs on SR anyway?
