AMHERST COUNTY, Va. – Virginia State Police have charged an Amherst County man who was formerly employed by a police department on computer-related charges following an investigation.

Officials said Timothy D. Maberry, 43, turned himself in Friday to state police.

The charges stem from allegations of illegal activity conducted while Maberry was formerly employed by the Town of Amherst Police Department, officials said.

A multijurisdictional grand jury handed up the following indictments against Maberry, officials said:

  • One felony count of interception of a wire, electronic or oral communication
  • One misdemeanor count of unlawful dissemination of images of another
  • One misdemeanor count of harassment by computer
