After 5 separate explosive devices, disguised as packages, killed 2 Austin residents and injured several others, locals have been justifiably on edge about accepting or opening packages delivered to their door.
However, Austin authorities have reported an unexpected side effect of the turmoil that gripped the Texas capital these past weeks. Package thefts, typically a very common crime in the area, are down nearly 98% since the beginning of March.
Local resident, DeShaun Williams, told investigators he had all but given up on any hope of receiving the xanax pills he bought from a Chinese manufacturer on the deep web, after having several packages, worth an estimated 0.5 Bitcoin, stolen by other neighborhood drug dealers. Williams is delighted to be back in business, and plans on ordering several grams of fentanyl on AlphaBay.
