Lead Silk Road Investigators from Secret Service & Drug Enforcement Agency ImplicatedFormer Secret Service agent Shaun Bridges the lead investigator in contact with Dread Pirate Roberts (DPR), alongside fellow STATE goon and former DEA agent Carl Force have been charged with money laundering, wire fraud, and theft of government property related to the investigation of the Silk Road Marketplace (see Criminal Complaint, press release). The investigation eventually led to the arrest and conviction of Ross Ulbricht on several charges. However, charges related to the muder-for-hire plot currently remain pending in a Maryland court. Not surprisingly, according to evidence presented by attorneys for the Department of Justice, Shaun Bridges and Carl Force utilized the now defunct Mt. Gox bitcoin exchange to aid their alleged money laundering.
