An investigation was launched “into a market on the dark web selling illicit items such as compromised financial accounts and hacking tutorials.”
A 22-year-old Laval man is facing multiple charges in connection with two police investigations into cybercrimes dating from 2018 and 2019.
In a statement issued Tuesday, the RCMP said that Chris Tyrone Dracos had been charged in Quebec Court last Friday with unauthorized use of a computer and having obtained a device to allow that use.
Dracos is scheduled to return to court Tuesday and was kept in custody on an unrelated matter.
The RCMP’s cybercrimes division said its investigation began in 2018. But a second, separate investigation was launched in 2019 “into a market on the dark web selling illicit items such as compromised financial accounts and hacking tutorials. Evidence gathered allowed the RCMP to link the investigations and identify a suspect.”
