FBI and Naval Investigative agents also on Tuesday obtained a suitcase with Pollard's name on it that his wife, [Ann Henderson Pollard], had given to "a third party," FBI agent Lydia S. Jechorek said in an affidavit filed with a U.S. magistrate in Washington.
The "third party" was not identified. But Jechorek said that Pollard admitted the suitcase "contains highly classified documents and information relating to the national defense," and she said that Pollard also admitted "he had given these documents and this information to agents of a foreign government."
U.S. Magistrate Patrick Attridge ordered Pollard held without bond pending a hearing next Wednesday. Assistant U.S. Atty. Harry A. Benner told Attridge that Pollard had traveled recently outside the United States and "shows some intent to flee."
