A Mount Laurel police officer is facing criminal charges for allegedly hacking into a Evesham woman's Snapchat and Facebook accounts and sharing nude photos of her.
Ayron Taylor, 22, of Delran, gained access to the accounts earlier this year and found nude photos that the woman had taken of herself, the Bucks County Prosecutor's Office said. Taylor then allegedly sent those photos to the woman's Snapchat contacts and to her friends in Facebook messages, and posted them on her Facebook wall.
Some of the photos that Taylor sent to others were taken when the woman was a minor, police said. Investigators did not say whether Taylor had a prior relationship with the woman.
The investigation began last month after the woman contacted Evesham Township police to report that her accounts had been accessed by an unknown person who distributed the explicit photos.
Taylor became a full-time officer with the Mount Laurel Police Department last October after graduating from the police academy. He has been suspended without pay and the department is seeking to fire him.
