A drug dealer operating in the digital underworld was sent to prison this week. 29-year-old Anton Peck, of Boca Raton, Florida, was sentenced to 16 years in prison for conspiring to possess with intent to distribute controlled substances. Peck previously pled guilty to one count of conspiring to possess with intent to distribute fentanyl, methamphetamine, and heroin.
According to court records, between May 2021 and May 2022, Peck distributed narcotics from various dark web markets using the vendor profile “Syntropy.” After the transactions were carried out using cryptocurrency, Peck and co-conspirators Kevin Fusco and Vincent Banner mailed parcels containing fentanyl, heroin, and methamphetamine to cities around the country using the United States Postal Service.
Law enforcement agents were able to recover kilogram quantities of fentanyl, cocaine, methamphetamine, and heroin from business and storage locations in West Palm Beach, Boca Raton, and New York City. Peck, the leader of the operation, obtained bulk amounts of narcotics, advertised them using the Syntropy vendor profile, orchestrated distribution, and collected customer payments. He possessed a list of more than 6,000 customers living in every part of the U.S.
On November 4, 2022, Fusco, 34, of West Palm Beach, Fla., was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Robin L. Rosenberg to 11 years in prison for conspiring to distribute fentanyl, heroin and methamphetamine. Banner, 31, of Boynton Beach, Fla., is scheduled to be sentenced on February 10, 2023, after pleading guilty to one count of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute fentanyl, methamphetamine and heroin.
