WASHINGTON D.C. — A former CIA case officer and naturalized U.S. citizen was arrested Monday night at New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport and charged with illegally retaining classified information.

Jerry Chun Shing Lee, 53, was entering the United States from Hong Kong when he was taken into custody.

Newly unsealed court documents filed in the Eastern District of Virginia show the FBI has been investigating Lee since at least 2012, according to a report by ABC News.

Agents who were watching him while he was in Honolulu, Hawaii, during that time period obtained a search warrant and entered his hotel room. They then photographed items in his possession, including two notebooks containing names and phone numbers of covert CIA assets and locations of covert facilities.

Lee, who resides in Hong Kong, was charged with illegally possessing classified records, including names and phone numbers of covert CIA assets.

Lee served in the U.S. Army from 1982 to 1986 and worked for the CIA from 1994 to 2007 as a case officer trained in surveillance detection, covert communications, and handling of assets, the ABC News report said.

The government alleges the notebooks contained Secret and Top Secret information that, if disclosed, "could cause exceptionally grave damage to the United States."

Lee has not been charged with espionage. He is expected to be moved from New York, where he currently is held, to Alexandria, Virginia, for his initial appearance in federal court. A conviction on the offense of illegal retention of documents carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.
