Submitted by SonicSpike
SonicSpike (242293) writes "As part of their quest to crack down on anonymous Internet criminal marketplaces, US authorities arrested a New Hampshire man for selling guns online in exchange for the digital currency Bitcoin on the Internet site Black Market Reloaded, US prosecutors in New Jersey said on Thursday.

Prosecutors charged the man, Matthew Crisafi, 38, with conspiracy to commit money laundering, smuggling goods from the United States and selling firearms without a license. He was to be presented in court in New Hampshire late on Thursday before being brought to New Jersey to face the charges.

In a criminal complaint filed on Thursday, authorities described Black Market Reloaded as a site similar in appearance to the widely used Internet marketplaces EBay and Amazon.com but accessible only via the encrypted network Tor, which hides users' identifying information, including digital tags signifying their location."
