5 Arrested in Dark Net Crackdown

Five people have been arrested as part of an investigation into online criminal marketplaces.

The Dutch public prosecution service said a site named Utopia had been used to trade drugs, stolen credit cards, and weapons, among other illegal goods.

The police also seized 900 Bitcoins, worth about £363,000.

The site had only launched nine days ago, and posted screen shots displaying guns, hacking kits and other counterfeit goods up for sale.
