    FBI, International Authorities Arrest Hundreds In Encrypted Messaging App Sting

    or almost three years, criminals used an encrypted network that the FBI had access to

    For almost three years, criminals used a network of encrypted devices to share the dirty details of their smuggling and money laundering operations. If their messages about stuffing cocaine into pineapples and cans of tuna ever fell into authorities' hands, they believed, the incriminating information could be wiped from the encrypted devices they were using.
    Well, they were duped.
    The FBI was in cahoots with the developer of the device, called "Anom," the whole time, and yesterday announced a series of successful busts and 800+ arrests under the code name Operation Trojan Shield. They also seized...
    • Eight tons of cocaine and 22 tons of cannabis
    • 55 luxury vehicles
    • 250 firearms
    • $48+ million worth of various currencies and cryptocurrencies
