‘I feel like a complete idiot’: Bay Area man avoids jail for selling fake Adderall pills containing meth online

SAN FRANCISCO — A Bay Area man was sentenced to three years of supervised release, but no jail time, after pleading guilty to selling fake Adderall pills containing methamphetamine, court records show.

Andrew Tan, of San Francisco, was charged in 2021 after authorities linked him to an account on the dark web called ADDERALL123 that offered 30 milligram pills of the prescription drug, which is used to treat ADHD. Undercover Drug Enforcement Agents ordered pills from the account, while police tracked one of the packages to a post office in Daly City, and confirmed that Tan was the one who mailed it.

In a three-page apology letter to the court, Tan wrote that he is “truly sorry” and pled for leniency.

“I feel like a complete idiot and ignorant for the crime I committed,” Tan wrote. “I love my wife so much, I wish I could take away all the pain and burden of her responsibilities, and especially my conviction away from her. Everyday, I regret my actions knowing I caused her additional stress and anxiety.”
