The Department of Justice said Wednesday it secretly filed a criminal complaint against a government contractor accused of stealing classified materials more than a month ago.
Sound familiar? Well, Edward Snowden faces similar charges.
The DOJ filed the complaint against Maryland resident Harold Thomas Martin III, who was reportedly suspected of keeping classified "hard copy documents and digital information" in his home and car.
According to several outlets, Martin worked at consulting company Booz Allen Hamilton — the same firm that hired Edward Snowden.
Martin was arrested Aug. 27 and charged two days later. He's accused of removal and retention of classified materials and theft of government property. On those charges combined, he faces up to 11 years in prison.
