A former Secret Service agent accused of pocketing $820,000 worth of Bitcoin money while investigating the Silk Road online drug marketplace has pleaded guilty to money laundering and obstruction of justice.

Tech Times reports that then-Secret Service Agent Shaun Bridges admitted Monday to stealing the Bitcoin money and placing it in a personal account.

Bridges said he stole about 20,000 Bitcoin in 2013.

Another federal agent, Carl Force, also admitted to stealing the digital currency several month ago.

“This case shows we will act quickly to hold wrongdoers accountable, no matter who they are,” Assistant Attorney General Leslie R. Caldwell said.

Top Justice Department officials are accused of withholding information from a judge about irregularities in a lawsuit against the ATF, The Arizona Republic reports, citing recently unsealed documents.

The case involves retired ATF agent Jay Dobyns, who alleges the ATF failed to properly investigate an intentional fire at his Tucson house in 2008 and failed to protect him and his family against death threats.

Unsealed documents suggest that top Justice Department officials failed to provide e-mails that show that a DOJ attorney tried to prevent the re-opening of a botched arson investigation.

Other records also indicate that one of the DOJ officials met with subordinates to determine whether they should tell the judge about a possible threat made to an internal-affairs agent in the case.
