Summary

Nine teens in southern Italy have been cited for buying cannabis and hash on the Internet with cryptocurrency, reports Ansa. The teens allegedly used Bitcoin to make the purchases, believing that the cryptocurrency would allow them to evade detection, police said. A recent raid on a suspected cannabis grow in the U.K. found no cannabis, but instead uncovered a Bitcoin mining operation with 100 computers. Police allegedly found evidence of 10 purchases dated between June 2016 and June 2017 on the phone of one of the teens. Further investigation eventually led to the arrest of 84 individuals, as well as the seizure of firearms and large quantities of unspecified drugs.
