#Encrochat: How narco king known as ‘The Chocolate’ was nabbed on crime app

The Border drug dealer known as ‘The Chocolate’ has told associates that he’s ready to go to jail.

The Newry-based narco king is preparing to stand trial next month on a raft of drugs charges including importation and distribution.

The notorious dealer was detained as part of a Europe-wide investigation called Operation Venetic, in which criminals using encrypted mobile devices to import and export drugs were targeted.

Commonly referred to as EncroChat, criminals have used encrypted mobile devices to adopt and hide behind code names.Around 60,000 users of EncroChat have been identified worldwide, with about 10,000 of them in the UK – all involved in coordinating and planning the supply and distribution of drugs and weapons, money laundering and other criminal activity.

A number of people in Northern Ireland have been arrested and charged, with a small number of cases already having passed through the courts.

But until his court appearance it’s business as usual for one of the most prolific drug dealers in the North.

According to sources, last week he is understood to have been involved in an altercation which resulted in the temporary closure of a bar in the Newry area.

Sources have told the Sunday Worldthere was a confrontation after members of staff at a Newry bar raised concerns over the mob using it for drug deals.

It is understood a complaint was made to the bar manager who confronted an individual who is a known associate of The Chocolate.

It resulted in the arch criminal being called and his arrival at the bar.

“He told everyone there that as far as he is concerned Newry is his town and that he will do his business wherever he wants,” said our source.

“It was a tense moment, the staff were terrified to the extent the manager sent them home early.”

He said there were rumours the pub had shut permanently over concerns for staff and customer safety. The bar was closed the following day but has since reopened.

It’s not the first time The Chocolate has been involved in a bar-room confrontation.

A number of years ago a member of staff at another Newry bar was on the wrong end of a beating at the hands of the crime boss after he tried to have him barred because of drug dealing on the premises.

The notorious mobster has a reputation for extreme violence and has been known to inflict brutal beatings, on one occasion dragging a driver who worked for Sinn Féin into the street and giving him a hammering.

The Chocolate has no convictions, despite being widely known as a major player in the drugs market.

The Sunday World, which is aware of his identity, first uncovered The Chocolate’s activities when he muscled in on the border town’s lucrative drug trade, pushing aside Barney “King Coke” Morgan.

Morgan, who also does not have criminal convictions, controlled Newry’s drug trade for years until the arrival of The Chocolate.

It was The Chocolate who brought heroin to the streets of the border town after going into partnership with an eastern European organised crime gang.

Residents expressed alarm at the rising tide of the deadly drug – people injecting heroin are now a regular sight on the streets of Newry. One resident told us how she challenged two people who were injecting in a children’s playpark.

Raymond McCreesh Park, which has been at the centre of controversy after it was named in honour of the IRA hunger striker, has become a playground for drug dealers and users.

“It was incredible,” the resident told us. “They were sitting in the playground, there were syringes on the ground, one of them had blood on it and they were clearly off their heads.

“When I spoke to them they just ran off.”

Despite residents’ objections, The Chocolate has continued to flood the area with the deadly drug.

“ 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 .
