Police target the man identified as 'Bitcoin creator'

Code:
Australian Federal Police raided the home and offices of Craig Steven Wright, the man named in Gizmodo and Wired reports as the possible mind behind Bitcoin. A dozen officials entered a home he was renting and offices registered to him, telling a Reuters reporter they were "clearing house." They also directed any questions to the Australian Tax Office, which has yet to comment. Wright has had previous run-ins with tax officials, and Wired reported that he may possess Bitcoins "easily worth a nine-figure fortune." However, the Guardian reports that the raids are unrelated to any possible role that Wright had in creating the crypto-currency.

Reuters spoke with the owner of the home, who said the Wright was renting it but planned to move to England on December 22nd. He added that Wright had a "substantial computer system" that required a three-phase electrical setup for extra power. Several police officers involved in the search wore uniforms identifying them as computer forensics personnel.

They said it had something to do with his taxes I believe.
