Feds charge 21 people in global crypto money laundering bust


The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Texas announced on Wednesday that it has charged 21 people in a transnational crypto money-laundering network that washed millions in funds scammed from thousands of U.S. victims.

The charges were unsealed as part of “Operation Crypto Runner,” which was established by U.S. Attorney Brit Featherston of the Eastern District of Texas, the Secret Service and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.

“These arrests are just the beginning. We are committed to bringing each of the remaining perpetrators to justice,” Secret Service Special Agent William Smarr said.
