The FBI and Homeland Security announced they have taken down Silk Road 2.0, an illegal drug marketplace, and arrested its alleged owner Blake Benthall, who went by the name “Defcon.” Benthall, 26, was arrested Wednesday in San Francisco and is expected to make an appearance in court here later on Thursday. The bust comes a little over a year since the alleged creator of the original Silk Road, Ross Ulbricht, was also arrested in San Francisco in October 2013. The Silk Road 2.0 site, which was nearly identical both in how it operated using Tor and in what it sold, launched a month later. Benthall then allegedly took administrative ownership as “Defcon” in late December 2013, according to the FBI.
