Two state troopers charged with hacking account
Two troopers from the Lehighton State Police barracks have been charged with hacking the account of a Jim Thorpe resident.
State police at Fern Ridge charged Erin Cawley, 41, and Anthony Kingsley, 32, both of Catasauqua, with the charge and related crimes.
According to troopers, the crimes occurred in January 2017.
The complaint involved the two suspects accessing a password protected social media account of a 40-year-old Jim Thorpe resident, without authority or permission to do so.
In addition to accessing the account the two took possession of private communications of the victim without permission or authority, troopers allege.
Both were arraigned before District Judge Eric M. Schrantz, of Jim Thorpe, and released on $500 unsecured bail each.
