A German teenager who made $4.3 million dealing drugs from his bedroom was sentenced to seven years in juvenile detention.
The man, known as “Maximilian S.”, was 18 years old at the time he began running a drug operation from a bedroom in his mother’s house, according to The Local.
The now 20-year-old dealer was sentenced for possession and intent to sell a number of drugs that included hashish, ecstasy pills, cocaine, LSD and prescription pills.
Maximilian S., who was nicknamed the “bedroom dealer”, purportedly transported 2,000 pounds of drugs worth 4 million pounds ($4.3 million) via mail. The teen ran a discreet business selling on the black market online where he was careful in encrypting emails and managing bank accounts under various aliases. He also rented computer servers in the Netherlands, used IP addresses throughout Germany, and conducted transactions via virtual currency Bitcoin.
Maximilian S. was busted when neighbors discovered a package he left in the hallway containing drugs. He was consequently sentenced by the Saxony state high court in Leipzig to seven years in juvenile detention despite no longer being a teen.
His 48-year-old mother was unaware of her son’s dealings. She claimed he was a loner because he had no girlfriend, never went on vacations and forbade her from entering his bedroom for the last two years.
