Federal agents arrest 4 men in dark web drug distribution ring

A U.S. attorney for the Central District of California described the international investigation that identified men profiting from online drug sales as an example of the Department of Justice's ability to counteract sophisticated dark web criminals.

They were allegedly involved with a dark web marketplace called Wall Street Market, which authorities described as the second-largest online market for contraband.

Low-carb diets may cause false positives on roadside tests

Some Californians are on the keto diet in an effort to lose weight or manage diabetes. The keto diet involves following a strict low-carb regimen so that the body will go into ketosis. During ketosis, the body burns fat for fuel in the absence of carbohydrates. While the keto diet is popular, it might also cause people to have false positives on roadside preliminary breath tests when police suspect that the driver is under the influence.
