Silk Road founder also charged with hiring a hitman to kill his employee | VentureBeat

Undercover agents from the FBI infiltrated the site as early as 2011 and began to execute deals on the site. At one point an undercover agent communicated with Ulbricht saying he wanted to sell 1 kilogram of cocaine, according to the indictment. Ulbricht allegedly solicited an “employee’s” help to find a buyer. Once the employee found a buyer, the FBI agent delivered the cocaine to the employee (as opposed to shipping it directly to the buyer) and subsequently arrested him.
