An American-Iranian citizen is suspected of trying to smuggle thousands of secret documents, including blueprints, of American F-35 stealth fighter to Iran, ABC News reported on Tuesday.

Mozaffar Khazaee, an engineer for a major American defense contractor, tried to smuggle "sensitive technical manuals, specification sheets, and other proprietary material" in 44 boxes labeled as "household goods."

He was reportedly arrested late last week on his way to Germany and then to Iran.
