ROANOKE COUNTY (WSLS 10) - The Roanoke County Police Department is investigating what they believe to be online harassment of a Botetourt County Deputy.

According to a search warrant, officers state a Facebook user posted on June 3rd that they had been raped by a Botetourt County Deputy.

When officers reached out to the user through Facebook, the warrant says the user denied posting anything relating to the incident.

The user then continued to post several messages about the Deputy on Facebook and Twitter throughout the month.

Officers are now retrieving the IP address of the user and intend to charge them with harassment.
