PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – A Portland man was sentenced to more than seven years in prison for using the darknet to sell ecstasy to people across the country, the U.S. Attorney’s Office says.

Skylaar Daylan Ford, 24, was also sentenced Wednesday to three years of supervised release. As part of his plea agreement, he will have to forfeit any property used to facilitate his crimes as identified by the government, according to the attorney’s office.

Ford in June 2017 was on post-prison supervision after a previous conviction for possession of a Schedule II controlled substance in Lane County Circuit Court, court documents state.

A Multnomah County Probation and Parole officer during a visit and search of Ford’s home in northeast Portland June 9 found more than 100 grams of heroin and contacted Portland police for help.

Officers and a Homeland Security Investigations agent arrested Ford and searched his home.

During the search, they found an unopened package addressed to Ford and his dog that contained nearly 500 grands of 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA), which is also known as "ecstasy" or "molly”, according to the attorney’s office.

Ford admitted to purchasing the drugs from a vendor in the Netherlands and reselling them on AlphaBay, a darknet marketplace.

Investigators later confirmed Ford had been an AlphaBay vendor since November 2016 and had completed more than 500 confirmed sales of ecstasy.

Ford on January 9 this year pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute MDMA, a Schedule I controlled substance.

Lawlessness Brings Destruction

Addressed to a DOG? What a scholar! Did this miscreant also work with ACORN to register family pets to vote Democrat? It would fit his lawless bent.
