The recent arrest of an Austrian couple has been tied on the Dread forum to a vendor by the name of AmaGueteSiegel who is behind over 7,000 sales across multiple markets. The pair, consisting of an unnamed 34-year-old man and 25-year-old woman – both Austrian citizens – were arrested on Sept. 19th in a bust that netted 19.3 kilograms of various drugs and 4,830 EUR in cash.
The resale value of the confiscated drugs was estimated to be in the millions of EUR. The drugs included 1.1 kg of cocaine, 650 g of cannabis resin, 19,000 Ecstasy pills, 3.3 kg of MDMA, 200 g of methamphetamine, and 2,868 tabs of LSD. Per drug investigators from the Vienna State Criminal Police Office, the duo had been under investigation since March 2020 and had been associated with darknet drug orders placed both locally and internationally.

“Looks like AmaGueteSiegel got busted. According to the pictures, it can be inferred that it’s them,” wrote a Dread user last Thursday in a post in /d/austria translated from German.
“I personally ordered from them and can confirm that the shown pills are their inventory. The green oreos are particular good evidence, because they aren’t listed yet but they gave me samples of them.
It’s sad they are gone, they were one of my favorites and definitely one of the vendors with the highest quality and reliability. They were always friendly and likeable in conversations.” – Dread user /u/frischdietmar
The duo had apparently operated under that vendor name on several different markets; most notably of which were Berlusconi, White House Market, and Versus. They had racked up dozens of positive reviews over the last two years on the Dread forum with several users commending them for the quality of their drugs, as well as the stealth of packaging and quantities always matching what was expected.
