Silk Road Shut Down Deep Internet Website by Ross William Ulbricht



ST LOUIS (LALATE) – Silk Road is shut down and Ross William Ulbricht aka Dread Pirate Roberts (photo above), the site’s alleged owner, is in custody. Silk Road was shut down by Federal agents pursuant to a search warrant earlier early today. A raid was effectuated. And Ross William Ulbricht (screename Dread Pirate Roberts) was taken into custody. While Ulbricht was in San Francisco when he was arrested, the servers for Silk Road are reportedly in a foreign country.

Ulbricht made millions, prosecutors claimed. With the Silk Road shut down, authorities stopped a website that was reportedly making 9.5 million Bitcoins and roughly $1.2 billion in sales annually. Feds called Silk Road “the most sophisticated and extensive criminal marketplace on the Internet today”.

But where was Silk Road? The University of Texas graduate reportedly placed the website on the “deep internet”, put it unsearchable by indexes, and required it to be viewable only with a specific browser. And while he kept a secret who is Dread Pirate Roberts, his personal social media footprint was large. He had a YouTube called “How To Get Away With Stealing”.

“Based on my training and experience, Silk Road has emerged as the most sophisticated and extensive criminal marketplace on the Internet today,” FBI Special Agent Christopher Tarbell said in the complaint. Ulbricht was ultimately arrested at the Glen Park branch of the San Francisco Public Library yesterday afternoon.
