Two Federal agents are now facing charges themselves after the takedown of the Silk Road drug marketplace last year. The two agents, Carl Mark Force and Shaun Bridges, were both involved in the takedown by operating undercover and building up evidence against the Silk Road operators.

According to an affidavit, Force redirected Bitcoins to a personal account during the investigation but failed to report this or turn them over once the investigation was completed. The idea of a couple extra bucks in his pocket could now result in years in prison instead as he faces charges of money laundering, wire fraud and theft of government property. The other agent, Bridges, only faces laundering and fraud charges. Naughty agents.
