Shaun Bridges was captured by CCTV security cameras, leaving a Secret Service field office with a large bag.

Shaun Bridges is one of two agents who pled guilty to stealing from the Darknet market.

That led to Ross Ulbricht, who was convicted of running Silk Road in February 2015, attempting to order the murder of the admin, Curtis Green.

Ulbricht was sentenced to life in prison last year.

Bridges' scam was later discovered, though.

The former Secret Service agent, who served on a Baltimore-based task force investigating Silk Road, was arrested in March 2015 and pled guilty a few months later.
