Three men who used the dark web to sell drugs ‘linked to over 125 deaths’ in the UK have been jailed for a total of more than 40 years.
Jake Levene, 23, Lee Childs, 45, and Mandy Lowther, 22, set up a business titled ‘UKBargins’ importing and exporting fentanyl and one of its analogues, carfentanyl.
They feared to have left behind an ‘unsolvable’ death toll as they raked in £163,474 in just five months. Jake Levene, 23, and Mandy Lowther, 22, have been jailed for 16 years each, while Lee Childs, 45, was given a 10 years sentence.
The class A drug, which is prescribed for severe pain relief, can be fatal in doses as small as 0.002g, a court heard, and the gang harvested enough to kill millions while ranking in £8,000 a week.
