During an international operation, German law enforcement officers arrested 32 people and detained 11 more, allegedly users of an illegal online platform.

The operation was attended by more than 1.4 thousand law enforcement officials, writes The Local Germany. In total, police raided 15 of Germany’s 16 federal states, as well as in neighboring Poland and Austria. During the searches, weapons, prohibited substances, computers, about $ 50 thousand in cash and 300 TB of data were found.

Law enforcement officers targeted users of the crimenetwork.co website, which is an underground marketplace for selling illegal goods and services (including illegal substances, fake money and documents, bank card details, malware and hacker tools, in particular botnets).

The 26-year-old site administrator was arrested in May 2019 while entering Germany on another charge. The resource itself has been disabled. Law enforcement agencies in several German federal states have been investigating crimenetwork.co users since last August.
