#Encrochat: Operation Venetic Untouchable Criminal ‘Breaking Bad’ Drug King gets 35 years

Paul Mount, a 38-year-old originally from Halsall, Lancs, and Darren Owens, a 48-year-old of Huyton, Merseyside, were said to be the “principle organisers” along with Saunderson.

“All were involved in the wholesale dealing of controlled drugs on a massive scale,” Merseyside Police said.

Mount was involved in amphetamine production but had also been in discussions about the supply of “huge quantities” of cocaine and heroin to Scotland, according to the force.

He had access to a Glock pistol and ammunition during the conspiracy, police said.

Mount was jailed for 34 years after being convicted of a string of drug-related charges at Liverpool Crown Court, as well as conspiracy to acquire or purchase a prohibited weapon.

Owens – who had the Encrochat username “PierreWhite” and “Paperjaguar” – was involved in the production of amphetamine and provided vans to help move drugs for Saunderson and Mount. 

He was jailed for 24 years for a string of drug-related charges at Liverpool Crown Court, Merseyside Police said. 

Det Insp Paul McVeigh, of Merseyside Police, said: “This was a huge operation which saw vast quantities of Class A and B drugs produced and distributed across the whole of Great Britain on an industrial scale.

“Our operation, working alongside our colleagues in North Wales, began in the spring of 2020 following the receipt of Encrochat material gathered by the National Crime Agency.

“Thanks to the investigative work of both forces nine people have now been sentenced to over 187 years behind bars.

“Each of those sentenced took part in the business for at least significant financial gain and although they all played different roles and were involved to differing degrees, they were all aware of the scale of the operation.”

Also sentenced for their roles in the conspiracy were Michael Pope, a 35-year-old from Maghull, who was jailed for 17-and-a-half years for a string of drug offences; Kieran Hartley, 32, of Moss Side, Liverpool, who was jailed for 23 years for supplying and producing drugs; Lee Eccles, 33, of Maghull, who was jailed for more than eight years for conspiracy to supply Class B drugs; David Kelly, 44, of Maghull, who was jailed for more than 15 years for drugs-related offences; Stefon Beeby, 42, formerly of Halifax, West Yorks, who was jailed for 15-and-a-half years for drugs-related offences; and Stephen Shearwood, 38, of Maghull, who was jailed for more than 14 years for conspiracy to produce and supply drugs.

“ 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 .
