A man was jailed in the US on drug trafficking charges after selling drugs online to young men, authorities said.
A judge in the Southern District of New York in New York City handed down the sentence in a New York federal court on Tuesday.
Cameron Lyle Thompson was sentenced by a federal judge to five years in prison on two counts of distribution of a controlled substance.
Thompson had pleaded guilty to a charge of violating federal drug laws by selling drugs on the dark web.
He had pleaded no contest to a separate charge of distributing a controlled drug, a felony.
The 32-year-old was also ordered to pay $7,500 in restitution.
Authorities said Thompson used the online marketplace Silk Road to sell the drugs, and used the website to buy a large quantity of MDMA, ecstasy, LSD, mescaline and methamphetamine, the Associated Press reported.
He was also accused of selling marijuana to undercover agents, according to court documents.
In addition to the two counts, Thompson was ordered to forfeit more than $25,000 in cash and a firearm, the AP reported.
The man was arrested in February after authorities said they found marijuana in his home, according the AP.
This is a developing story.
