Australian Police Raid Sydney Home Of Reported Bitcoin Creator

Yesterday this guy was outed by Wired as the possible creator of bitcoin. Today his property is being raided by authorities.

More than a dozen federal police officers entered a house registered on the electoral roll to Craig Steven Wright, whom Wired outed as the likely real identity of Satoshi Nakamoto, the pseudonymous figure that first released bitcoin's code in 2009. Locksmiths broke open the door of the property, in a suburb on Sydney's north shore. When asked what they were doing, one officer told a Reuters reporter they were "clearing the house".
