It has been reported in several places online. Here's one:
"In July 2013, a forensic analysis of the hard drives used to run one
of the Silk Road servers revealed a PHP script based on curl that
contained code that was identical to that included in the Stack
Overflow discussion, the complaint alleged."
(It appears they were able to find the server and have it imaged well
ahead of the arrest, and this is described in the court documents.)
