A Tulsa man pleaded guilty on Wednesday to smuggling ecstasy into the US by buying it over the dark network from a German supplier, according to the US Attorney’s Office for the northern district of Oklahoma.
US attorney Trent Shores said Jeremy Daniel Singer had signed a consent form admitting that he bought the drug, commonly known as MDMA, and sent it home under an assumed name. The Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office said at the time of Singer’s arrest that the package contained 500 tablets that were confiscated by U.S. Customs.
Singer told authorities he plans to sell the drugs for a profit.

Authorities said Singer fled the state and did not appear in federal court as agreed on March 12. Wyoming law enforcement attempted to stop his vehicle on April 9, but put him on an off-road chase before he parked his vehicle and escaped into a field, a press release said.
Singer was found the next day in Johnson County, Wyoming, where authorities said he was trying to evade the arrest of a bulldozer he had stolen. He was taken into custody.
The plea agreement recommends a prison sentence of 70 months. A judge will rule during a hearing on November 7, 2019.
Singer is known in the Tulsa community as the owner of a food truck business. Records show that he was also charged with drug trafficking in a state court, which was dismissed at the state’s request.
