    FBI raids home - suspected Chinese National spy ring

    http://www.wwltv.com/local/stories/w....b04dfb85.html

    The FBI sectioned off and raided a residence in the Uptown area Monday morning.

    An FBI spokeswoman confirmed the raid in the 1700 block of Bordeau to Eyewitness News but could not elaborate because it is an ongoing operation.

    The Department of Justice scheduled a 1 p.m. press conference in D.C. regarding the issue.

    WWLTV.com will continue to update this story as more information becomes available.

    Former Houma restauranteur accused of spying for China

    ROBERT ZULLO
    Staff Writer

    HOUMA — The former owner of a restaurant at the Ellendale Country Club is accused of passing sensitive information on U.S. military sales to the People’s Republic of China.

    Tai Shen Kuo, 58, a naturalized U.S. citizen who neighbors and a former employee said moved to Houma from Taiwan more than two decades ago, was arrested by federal agents today in northern Virginia. His apprehension was part of an investigation that also resulted in the arrest of an Arlington, Va.-based defense analyst, and a 33-year-old Chinese national living in New Orleans.

    FBI agents raided Kuo’s house in Summerfield this morning, loading boxes and bags of evidence from inside the two-story gray home into more than a dozen unmarked cars and SUVs. In New Orleans, FBI agents simultaneously raided an Uptown home in connection with the case, the Associated Press reported.

    Gregg William Bergersen, 51, a weapon-systems analyst at the Defense Security Cooperation Agency, is accused of giving Kuo classified national defense information on U.S. military sales to Taiwan, according to a news release from the U.S. Department of Justice.

    Yu Xin Kang, of New Orleans, allegedly operated as an intermediary between Kuo and a Chinese official, identified only in the complaint as “PRC Official A,” who allegedly directed the espionage effort.
