Ex CIA Agent Arrested For Stealing Top Secret Information For China That Led to Death of U.S. Agents

•, By Christina Zhao

Jerry Chun Shing Lee, 53, a naturalized U.S. citizen who now lives in Hong Kong, was detained at JFK airport on Monday based on a 2012 raid that found him in possession of two highly classified notebooks that contained real names, contact details and meeting locations of undercover CIA agents in China, according to an affidavit by Kellie R. O'Brien, that was filed to the district court of Eastern Virginia.

But sources close to the case have said that authorities now suspect that Lee gathered and funneled the information to China, which led to the murder or capture of around 20 undercover U.S. agents, NBC news reported.

"Agents found two small books containing handwritten notes that contained classified information, including but not limited to, true names and phone numbers of assets and covert CIA employees, operational notes from asset meetings, operational meeting locations and locations of covert facilities," the DOJ confirmed.
