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

The government said the bag may have contained hard drives with keys needed to access his Bitstamp wallet.

The lawyer representing Shaun Bridges, the corrupt Secret Service agent who was part of the Silk Road investigation, has said that his recent appeal is largely worthless and has asked to be removed from the case.

Davina Pujari, who is Bridges third lawyer since his appeals process began in December 2015, wrote in a filing last Friday to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals:

After having carefully examined this record and after having researched the relevant statutes and case law, counsel has concluded that this appeal presents only legally frivolous issues.

Therefore, counsel requests the Court's permission to withdraw as attorney of record and to allow Appellant to file any further briefs he deems necessary.
