Alleged Navy ‘spy’ Was Wannabe Medieval Swashbuckler

Ben Feuerherd at the New York Post offers a piece on the Navy civilian engineer accused of being a spy. 

The Navy nuclear engineer accused of trying to peddle US military secrets using a peanut-butter sandwich not only allegedly dreamed of being a spy - he saw himself as a Medieval swashbuckler, too.

Jonathan Toebbe, 42, of Annapolis, Md., allegedly began his espionage bid in April 2020 — while buying up Medieval sword-fighting gear and attending classes at a local “historic swordsmanship” outfit.

According to social-media posts by Toebbe, about two months after the would-be Benedict Arnold sent a package of restricted Navy documents and other materials to a purported contact in a foreign country, he boasted about a new sword to fellow members of the “Mid-Atlantic Society for Historic Swordsmanship.”
