A former Secret Service agent who stole money seized during the Silk Road investigation is now accused of stealing money in two other cases.

Fortune reports that former agent Shaun Bridges is accused of stealing about $700,000 worth of bitcoin from a Secret Service account.

The theft appeared to occur three months after the agency was told to block the agent’s access to the bitcoin account.

Bridge was sentenced to nearly six years in prison in December for stealing more than $800,000 in bitcoins during the Silk Road investigation.

The department was told to move the funds somewhere else.

“Unfortunately, the U.S. Secret Service did not do so and the funds were thereafter stolen, something the U.S. Secret Service only discovered once it was ordered by a court to pay a portion of the seizure back to affected claimants,” a team of prosecutors wrote in an accompanying motion.
