US navy engineer accused of hiding classified files in a sandwich charged with selling submarine secrets

A US navy engineer who hid a memory card loaded with classified files in a peanut butter sandwich and left it at a “dead drop” location has been charged with selling secrets about nuclear submarines.

Jonathan Toebbe is alleged to have sent a package of restricted data to an unidentified country last year, and later began selling secrets to an undercover FBI agent posing as a foreign official, the Justice Department said.
