    On Tuesday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation arrested in San Francisco Ross William Ulbricht, 29, alleged owner and mastermind of the infamous site, according to a complaint filed by the U.S. Attorney's Office in New York. Ulbricht, a.k.a. Dread Pirate Roberts, has been charged with conspiring to money launder, hack computers and traffic in narcotics.
