The couple are accused of trying to sell classified data on US nuclear submarines to a foreign country

A US Navy nuclear engineer and his wife have been accused of trying to sell nuclear secrets to what they thought was a representative of a foreign country.

Jonathan Toby and his wife, Diana, were arrested in West Virginia on Saturday, the US Department of Justice announced.

The pair are accused of trying to sell classified nuclear submarine design data to someone they thought represented another country, but were in fact nothing more than an undercover FBI officer.

The two accused tried to hide confidential data inside a peanut butter sandwich once, and inside a pack of gum again.
