Ex-Gore Worker Charged With Trade Secret Theft Try

Posted: Updated:

NEWARK, Del. (AP) - Federal authorities have charged a former W. L. Gore & Associates chemical engineer with trying to steal trade secrets.

Forty-eight-year-old Kwang Seoung Jeon was arrested at a Newark hotel on April 2, the day the U.S. citizen had tickets to fly to South Korea, where he was born. A detention hearing is scheduled Monday.

According to a criminal complaint, Jeon tried to steal documents related to Newark-based Gore's new high tech camouflage after receiving a poor performance review. Documents state that Jeon announced his resignation in March, prompting supervisors to move him to a different work area at an Elkton, Md., facility, but he was later spotted printing documents in his previous work area.

The U.S. Attorney's Office and Jeon's public defender declined comment.
