Police and prosecutors in a statement said they have been working for over a year to overthrow the chemical revolution, which sell amphetamine, cocaine, heroin, marijuana, ecstasy, lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) and other synthetic drugs.

The website that received payment using Bitcoin, began operating in September 2017 and was allegedly controlled by a 26-year-old German citizen. However, he was in custody since May.

The latest detained suspects are eight German citizens aged between 24 and 35 years old, two Polish, 32 and 44 years old, and 43-year-old Dutch citizens.

All of them manage the drug procurement, packaging, transportation and distribution operations.

In its first operation in early 2018, police arrested a German man in Brandenburg, in the east of the country, and a number of drugs were found in his home.

Meanwhile, between February and May 2019, in collaboration with Poland, the Netherlands, France and Spain, German investigators arrested 10 more suspects.

However, statements issued by the authorities on Friday do not disclose the amount of drug sold through the website, or income earned before it is closed.
