SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — The Navy has charged seven sailors in connection with the illicit videotaping of female officers and student trainees aboard a submarine.

Documents released Wednesday by the Navy show that the Georgia-based sailors served aboard the USS Wyoming and were charged last month. Three of those sailors also are charged with taping the women.

The Navy had previously identified all the females as officers, but the documents showed that some of them were trainees.

The records say one missile technician traded two energy drinks for the illicit files. Another is accused of saying collecting the videos was “like Pokémon, gotta catch them all.”

Prosecutors have said the videos show females undressing and drying off in the submarine’s shower area.

The Navy began allowing women to serve aboard U.S. submarines in 2011.
