Utah man found guilty of running massive opioid ring

With the help of a handful of friends, Shamo bought the powerful opioid fentanyl online from Chinese manufacturers, pressed it into fake oxycodone pills and sold it on the dark web, prosecutors said.

Two friends Shamo had met while working at eBay packaged the pills, sometimes processing so many that they had to vacuum them off the floor, prosecutors said.

Another former coworker sent them out through the U.S. mail.

Defense attorney Greg Skordas argued that Shamo was a college dropout who was naive enough to buy much of the drugmaking equipment in his own name.
