He had been sentenced to twenty years in prison by American justice.

Incarcerated in Florida since his arrest while going to the contest for the most beautiful beard in the world in 2017, Gal Vallerius could come to serve the end of his sentence in France.

According to

Le Télégramme

, the man who was nicknamed the Breton baron of the darknet, asked to be transferred to France.

This 38-year-old Franco-Israeli was hiding behind the nickname OxyMonster to sell drugs on the Net.

Before being arrested on his arrival in the United States, the bearded man lived peacefully with his partner in Plusquellec, a small village in the Côtes d'Armor.

When he arrived in the United States in 2017, the federal agency against drug trafficking seized his computer. She had discovered the TOR browser (which allows you to browse anonymously), but also codes to enter Dream Market, the "online drug supermarket", and "the equivalent of $ 500,000 in bitcoins". In 2018, Gal Vallerius pleaded guilty in Miami court, which sentenced him to twenty years in prison.

The three known homes of the suspect, all located in the Côtes d'Armor department, had been searched by the French courts.

The police had discovered "the remains of packaging of narcotics" allowing the cocaine to be weighed and dosed individually.

Investigators had found "no production laboratory or place of storage" of the drug.
