Three men in their early 20s have been arrested in Manchester while the fourth, a man in his early 50s has been arrested in Devon - all charged on suspicion of supplying illegal drugs.
The Silk Road website was shut down by the FBI last week following the arrest of Ross Ulbricht, the alleged administrator of the billion dollar operation. The website, which operated on the deep web, allowed people to anonymously buy and sell a range of illegal items including drugs, counterfeit currency, guns and even offered hitmen for hire.
The arrested were made by the newly-formed National Crime Agency (NCA) and follow the arrest of Ulbricht, 29, in San Francisco on Tuesday last. The NCA officers who made the arrests were working closely with law enforcement agencies in the US, and the UK arrests took place just hours after Ulbricht's arrest.
