A man could end up behind bars for 15 years after he was caught mining Bitcoin (BTC) and other cryptocurrencies inside the county seat in Riverhead, New York.

The Associated Press reports that Christopher Napoli, the supervisor of IT operations in the county clerk’s office, faces charges of public corruption, grand theft and computer hacking for secretly installing 46 crypto miners inside the government building.

The 42-year-old, who has been a county employee for more than two decades, allegedly placed the devices in six rooms, concealing them in places such as unused electrical wall panels and under floorboards. Authorities say some of the machines have been in place since February.

Timothy Sene, Suffolk County District Attorney He says The Naples scheme cost the public treasury at least $6,000 in electricity bills.

Cryptocurrency mining requires a huge amount of resources, and miners have to navigate how to cover all of their electricity and cooling costs. [Naples] I found a way to do it; Unfortunately, that was on the taxpayer’s shoulders.”

Cini also says that Naples put so many miners inside the building that many employees were complaining about slow internet, and when miners were taken out of one room, the temperature dropped by more than 20 degrees.

“Not only do we have thousands of dollars in taxpayer money to fund this operation, but it also puts the county’s infrastructure at risk.”
