A Michigan man has been charged with running an unlicensed money transmitting business after selling nearly $150,000 in bitcoin online.

According to an indictment released by Detroit TV news services WD-IV Friday, 52-year-old Bradley Anthony Stetkiw ran an exchange through the LocalBitcoins website, conducting transactions at restaurants in the Bloomfield area. Stetkiw is alleged to have sold bitcoin as part of a business venture for approximately two years, at a volume that would make him subject to federal anti-money laundering regulations.

Of the total, the documents, filed with the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, assert Stetkiw sold more than $56,000 worth of bitcoin to federal agents through six meetings.

According to the indictment:

"Operating under the user name 'SaltandPepper,' Stetkiw bought, sold and brokered deals for hundreds of thousands of dollars in bitcoins while failing to comply with the money transmitting business registration requirements set fort in Title 31, United States Code, Section 5330."

Stetkiw is notably not the first LocalBitcoins user to be charged for trading bitcoin.

Earlier this year, Detroit resident Sal Mansy plead guilty to the charge of operating an unlicensed money services business. He allegedly conducted $2.4 million-worth of transactions over a two-year period ending in July 2015.

Other arrests in Missouri and New York suggest actions against independent U.S. bitcoin sellers are becoming more commonplace.

Woman murdered by costumed clown



In Florida’s backlog of cold cases, one instance of a killer clown was one of the most intriguing, and it remained unsolved for nearly three decades. Now, an ironic twist in the case has emerged.

Twenty-seven years ago, Marlene Warren was shot dead at her front door by a clown holding balloons. The alleged assailant's identity remained a mystery for 27 years until cops arrested Sheila Keen, who later married Warren's husband.

In a bizarre turn of events, it has been learned that Warren was a big fan of clowns when she was a little girl.

Her mother Shirley Twing showed off the room they had filled with clown paraphernalia and paintings Warren drew of the circus favorites in an interview with ABC News' 20/20 that airs Friday.

Correspondent Deborah Roberts spoke about her interview with Twing with Inside Edition.

"It is a very eerie coincidence, it was just so bizarre that when we learned that the victim, Marlene Warren, actually painted clowns," she said.

Cops say back in 1990, Keen allegedly drove up to Marlene's Florida home carrying balloons and a bouquet of flowers. When Warren opened the door, the clown allegedly pulled out a gun and shot her in the face.

Two women say there is a strong possibility the murderer bought the clown costume at their shop.

One of the women recalled to 20/20 that a woman said she needed a clown costume "tonight" before the incident 27 years ago.

Cops say Keen, 54, was having an affair with the slain woman's husband, Michael Warren.

Sheila and Michael are now married and were leading a private life in a house in Virginia. They ran a fast food restaurant and Sheila went by the name Debbie.

The case had been cold for 27 years, but cops say new DNA tests gave them the evidence they needed to make the arrest.

"One of the investigative officers said she didn't seem that surprised when she was taken into custody," Roberts recalled. "One must has to wonder that police might come knocking at her door at some point."

Michael Warren, seen watching police take his wife into custody earlier this month, tells ABC News that she is "falsely accused" in the murder of his first wife.

I caught the new Star Wars trailers by accident, switching through channels.  I didn't care for Force Awakens or Rogue One.  I'm actually kind of excited to see this one.

Gaming Lounge / Couple finds hidden camera in Florida Airbnb

Couple finds hidden camera in Florida Airbnb

Two people said they are upset after discovering a hidden camera pointed at the bed in a room they rented from the popular site Airbnb.

"My wife and I are distressed by this situation. I hope more victims will come forward," Derek Starnes told ABC News affiliate WFTS-TV of Tampa, Florida, after he said he found a camera hidden in the smoke detector of a room he rented through Airbnb on Longboat Key, just south of Tampa Bay.

Starnes said he was able to notice the obscured pinhole camera only because he works in the information technology sector.

Wayne Natt, 56, who posted the room on Airbnb, was arrested for video voyeurism and is currently out on bond. His arraignment is scheduled for next month. Neither he nor his attorney immediately responded to ABC News' request for comment Wednesday.

Airbnb told ABC News that Natt had an account on its website for two years and had at least 40 reviews. The company said it has permanently banned him from the site.

"We are outraged at the reports of what happened. As soon as we were made aware, we permanently banned this individual from our community and fully supported the affected guests," Benjamin Breit, a spokesperson for Airbnb, told ABC News in a statement.

"Our team has reached out to local law enforcement to aid them with their investigation of this egregious offense, and we hope justice is served. We take privacy issues extremely seriously and have a zero-tolerance policy against this behavior," Breit added.

Local authorities said they found two cameras hidden in smoke detectors at the property.

Lt. Bob Bourque of the Longboat Key Police Department told WFTS-TV that officers seized from Natt's home "a lot of computer storage data devices, hard drives, computers, laptops, S.D. cards, anything that would store data."

Experts recommend that people untrained in such matters look for hidden cameras by using the camera light on a smartphone to spot the reflection from a lens. There are also apps that claim they can detect hidden cameras. In addition, if you are extremely concerned about your privacy, you can also purchase an RF detector, which checks for wireless signals and may be able to detect hidden cameras.
