A former NSA contractor stole so much top secret government information that it could fill roughly 200 laptop computers.

In a court filing Thursday, federal prosecutors said the thefts were “breathtaking in its longevity and scale,” Tribune News Services reports. 

Harold T. Martin, III, faces additional charges under the Espionage Act, which could mean harsh penalties if convicted.

Prosecutors said the evidence is “overwhelming” and that Martin admitted he was illegally storing classified materials.

“Given the nature of his offenses and knowledge of national secrets, he presents tremendous value to any foreign power that may wish to shelter him within or outside of the United States,” prosecutors said.
