Authorities in Germany conducted the biggest ever drug bust, confiscating over 700 pounds of colorful pills, cocaine, methamphetamine, marijuana and LSD, intended for underground online sales.

Police discovered the huge drug stash in an apartment, belonging to a 20-year-old man in Lepzig, Germany and valued at over $4 million. The man moved large quantities of narcotics through a Dark Web site named Shiny Flakes.

The site conducted business using the virtual currency, “Bitcoins.” to process transactions. After the raid, authorities shut down the website. Police replaced the site with a recruiting message for anyone looking to join the force.

German police started investigating the suspect after large packages of drugs were sent to the wrong addresses in several German cities.
Agents searched the homes of 38 people that were on the alleged the suspect’s customer list.

Last year U.S. and European law enforcement agencies made several arrests and shut down the site “Silk Road.” The sting led to the conviction of Ross Ulbricht aka Dread Pirate Roberts, who created the site.
