More Bitcoin Stolen after Silk Road Agent found Guilty
New documents unsealed in the ongoing case between the US government and a former Secret Service agent convicted of stealing bitcoins during the Silk Road investigation allege that additional thefts may have taken place.
Shaun Bridges was one of two former US federal agents accused of going rogue during the investigation of the Silk Road, the now-defunct dark market.
At the time, the US government alleged that Bridges stole as much as $800,000 in bitcoin seized from the Silk Road.
Bridges plead guilty last summer to money laundering and wire fraud charges, and was sentenced to roughly six years in prison in December.
Court documents filed later that month by the US government suggested that Bridges was being investigated for additional bitcoin thefts.
