On Monday, a Charleroi policeman was arrested due to an investigation. The investigation was sparked when a foreign intelligence service intervened in a weapons and explosives buy from a dark net market.
The public Prosecutor’s office confirmed that two warrants were issued for the arrest of Thomas V; a 35-year-old Charleroi police officer. He was part of the GSA, a security and intelligence group based in Chareroi. He was charged with illegally importing weapons, along with two counts of attempted murder.
Reports state that Thomas V. was planning to assassinate at least two people. Also, that he had already received several weapons deliveries prior to being arrested.
He was arrested by special forces and numerous weapons and other items were confiscated from the suspects home. Prosecutors were also able to confirm the assassination plot of at least two people from information gathered at the scene.
The two murder victims are said to be the current boyfriends of two of Thomas’ ex-girlfriends.
The main question being asked is how someone who works to fight against the use, and growth of dark net markets gets caught importing weapons of all things. Working on the inside of these organizations
