The popular San Francisco media and political consultant who was arrested after federal authorities found bomb-making materials at his apartment bought toxins in the black market, reported SFIST.com.

Using a fake name, Ryan Chamberlain is accused of buying biological agents and lethal toxins from California and Florida. Those toxins include ricin, pure nicotine and abrin.

The abrin powder alone was powerful enough to kill hundreds of people but it would have required more extensive work to purify the substance.

Chamberlain has been ordered to undergo a psychological evaluation.

Illicit Drug Site Silk Road Has Relaunched and Pokes Fun at Federal Law Enforcement

Just a month after the FBI arrested its founder, the black market site Silk Road is back up, the Daily Caller reports.

The notorious site, where people could buy drugs, guns and even hit men, relaunched Wednesday with more protections for its customers, who use a currency called Bitcoin to avoid being traced.

“You can never kill the idea of Silk Road,” the new Dread Pirate Roberts tweeted just before the new site’s launch.

The Daily Caller wrote that the encrypted website cannot be easily dismantled by the feds.

After the FBI took over the site, it read “This hidden site has been seized.” On the relaunched site, the phase “seized” was replaced with “risen again.”
