A federal grand jury indicted former Arlington Heights resident David 
Yen Lee on charges he stole trade secrets to divulge to a competitor.

The indictment, which U.S. attorney Patrick Fitzgerald announced Friday, 
charges Lee with five counts of economic espionage.

According to the indictment, the 52-year-old Lee worked as technical 
director of new product development for the Wheeling branch of Valspar 
Corp., a Minneapolis-based paint company, from 2006 to March 2009.

According to the indictment, Lee downloaded documents and data from 
Valspar and its China subsidiary, Huarun Ltd., to an external thumb 
drive authorities found during a March search of Lee's home on the 400 
block of West Rand Road in Arlington Heights.
