Overdose Case Leads to Money Laundering Charges

A law enforcement investigation into drug overdoses in the Grand Forks, North Dakota area has lead to one of the case's defendants facing money laundering charges in addition to the drug related charges, for reasons that seem to entirely involve the particular defendant having at one point used Bitcoin for something. The 20 year old defendant's drug related charges include "conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute controlled substances resulting in serious bodily injury and death."

The charges relate to the overdose deaths of two consumers who used a combination product including fentanyl. In addition to the twenty year old defendant who was hit with money laundering charges, three other defendants were implicated.
