A great-grandson of Alexander Graham Bell has been arrested on charges 
of being an international spy.

Walter Kendall Myers, 72, and his wife Gwendolyn, 71, were arrested June 
4 in Washington, D.C. after the FBI alleged the pair were spying on the 
United States for Cuba for three decades.

Myers is a former U.S. State Department analyst who had top-secret 
security clearance, according to The Associated Press.

He is the son of Elsie Alexandra Carol Grosvenor Myers, granddaughter of 
the famed telephone inventor and aviation enthusiast who made Baddeck 
his home.
