Two federal agents have been charged with stealing money from the Silk Road

of stealing money from the Silk Road, an online drug marketplace that was taken down by federal warrant more than a year ago. Hailing from the Drug Enforcement Agency and Secret Service respectively, Carl Mark Force and Shaun Bridges were both involved in undercover operations that built evidence against the Silk Road in the months leading up to its seizure in October of 2013. According to an affidavit, Force redirected bitcoin to a personal account during the investigation, and did not report or turn over the bitcoin once the investigation was completed. As a result, he faces charges of money laundering, wire fraud, and theft of government property. Bridges faces only laundering and fraud charges.
