Three more men face charges for their alleged roles in the online black market website known as the Silk Road.

Federal prosecutors in Manhattan unsealed an indictment on Friday (today, NZT) against Andrew Michael Jones of Charles City, Virginia, Gary Davis of Wicklow, Ireland, and Peter Phillip Nash of Brisbane, Australia. They're charged with narcotics, computer hacking and money laundering conspiracy.

Prosecutors say the 24-year-old Jones and 25-year-old Davis were site administrators. They say the 40-year-old Nash moderated a site forum.

Jones and Nash are both in custody. Davis is believed to be in Ireland.

The owner of the site authorities say generated $1 billion in illicit business already faces charges.

A lawyer for Jones didn't return a message seeking comment. It wasn't clear if Davis and Nash had lawyers.
