Arrested of #Encrochat: Connor Smith multi-million pound amphetamine lab gangster


The final member of a gang which had a multi-million pound amphetamine lab in North Wales has been jailed. Connor Smith was one of ten men arrested following a major investigation into a Merseyside-based gang which operated the lab.

Conspirators have now been jailed for a combined total of nearly 200 years. Liverpool Crown Court heard on Friday that the 29-year-old was involved in the supply of class B drugs only - including up to £2.5million of cannabis.

Nicola Daley, prosecuting, described how EncroChat messages revealed that Smith - of Derby Grove in Maghull - and the other gang members were "involved in the wholesale supply of cannabis". His communications, undertaken using the handle Tactical Hawk, evidenced a total of 499kg supplied or offered between April and June 2020 - drugs with an estimated street value of between £2,242,425 and £2,513,009.

He was also involved in trafficking around 20kg of ketamine. Smith, who appeared via video link to HMP Liverpool, has eight previous convictions for 11 offences - including for production of cannabis and possession of cannabis with intent to supply.

Ms Daley said: "He appears to have been involved in organising the buying and selling of cannabis on a commercial scale, including its importation - involving himself with the expectation of substantial financial advantage."

“ If you need to communicate top classified information or you need to store secret data and be absolutely sure that no state-sponsored hackers, no foreign Governments , no intelligence agencies will be ever able to decipher the files, you need an Above Military Level Offline SuperEncryption System” 


Rule number 1 ☝🏼:

EncroChat evidences has been collected from the storage on the devices seized . A real military grade encryption device can’t be ever accessed by any digital forensic tools such as Cellebrite.

Rule number 2 :

Never 👎 use encryption services that are server based . Servers can be hacked easily and all data passing through them can be intercept. Servers also store the messages so that also this cloud based storage can be accessed and used as evidence.

Rule number 3:

Never , ⛔️ ever trust their party encryption services. The moment you trust a third party for generating your encryption keys, manage and store them for you , it’s game over . It’s like giving the keys of your bank vault to a total stranger .

Rule number 4 :

Stop 🛑 trusting cheap online encrypted phone suppliers! ⚠️ The garbage online are fake encrypted phones based on a $ 50 USD cheap Android cellphone bought in China and installed with a very low level security end to end encrypted messaging app.

Work like a pro, like intelligence agencies do ! Stop being scammed by online marketers selling you security illusions .

Cyber War Ultra Encrypted Communications.

This is an encrypted text message, that has been encrypted with an OTP cipher (quantum safe encryption- mathematically unbreakable) , on a DBV “ Air Gapped “ Offline SuperEncryption Machine. The Encrypted message is then exported from the offline device by visual means( no connections , not even physical) by scanning the QR code with an online device for then sending it safely online.

The QR code at is arrival, is scanned by the second DBV offline encryption machine , directly from the receiving online device. Afterwards , it’s deciphered safely offline. This form of super encrypted offline communications is safer than a face to face meeting .
