DENVER (CBS4)– An expert from Metro State University of Denver believes it’s very simple for anyone to access the dark net as authorities conduct a global crackdown involving the hidden websites.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents released a video of items recovered by investigators. The effort is aimed at buyers and sellers of illegal drugs and other illegal items through hidden websites.
Investigators found everything from drug paraphernalia, prescription drugs and even the illegal transfer of animals like turtles.
“Essentially you can go to the tour website, download the browser, double click and you’re in. It’s very simple and it’s been that way for a long, long time so people will use it,” said Metro State University Professor Steve Beaty.
The investigation took place in the U.S., Canada, England and Australia.
