Mount Laurel officer suspended from force, accused of hacking into woman's social media accounts
A Mount Laurel police officer who is accused of hacking into a woman's social media accounts has been suspended from the force.
Officer Ayron Taylor was arrested earlier this month. Prosecutors say Taylor was charged after an Evesham Township woman told police that someone hacked her accounts and got a hold of nude photos that she had taken of herself.
Detectives say Taylor posted the photos to all of the woman's contacts on Snapchat and to her friends on Facebook. Prosecutors say the two were not acquainted so it's unclear what the motive may have been.
Taylor is charged with computer crime, invasion of privacy and endangering the welfare of a child because some of the photos posted were taken when the woman was underage.
The chief of the Mount Laurel Police Department was not available for comment, but the department sent out a statement through its social media account saying, "We are deeply troubled at the charges that have been filed against Taylor and give our full support to the investigation being conducted by the Burlington County Prosecutor's Office."
