If you obtained the vidence illegally, you may get in trouble. See a lawyer first for legal advice before you do anything. Alternatively you can send the evidence to law enforcement anonymously.
You are morally obligated to report it, regardless of other factors. Contact the police and ask for confidentiality if you are worried.
