Silk Road’s online drug market has seen two of its site moderators apprehended by law enforcement. One person from the company was picked up by the long arm of the law in Ireland, while the other was arrested in Virginia.
Additionally, there have multiple arrests in the Silk Road debacle tackled by the diligent FBI who have been following the events in the case as they unfolded.
Andrew Michael Jones, known with the alias “Inigo” online, who was the Silk Road man gone after by the FBI in Virginia allegedly, had this to say: “I was at a loss for words. Something is definitely wrong and they have the ability to see things on here only mods or admins should.” Jones was apparently pointing out that marketplace security had been severely compromised.
