A 21 year old man from Houthalen and a 22 year old man from Zonoven in Belgium have been exposed as drug dealers after they posted more than 2.000 posts on a Dutch internet forum about drugs. The police concluded from their post that the two sold XTC, GHB, amphetamine and cannabis.
Between 2005 and 2007 the two had been posting on the Dutch drugs forum regularly. Their posts where reason for a search warrant. The police raided the man in Houthalen (Belgium) and found evidence that the man produced GHB. On the mobile phone of the girlfriend of the man, the police found a movie clip showing the man snorting drugs in his appartment. A search in the home of the man in Zonoven yielded pure heroin. De self produced GHB was sold for €175 per 500 millilitre.
The criminal court in Hasselt, Belgium sentenced the man from Houthalen today to 8 months in prison as parole and €5.500 fine. The man from Zonhoven was sentenced to 6 months in jail as parole and €5.500 fine.
Note: this has happened on another Dutch drug forum, that is not as strict as we are.
