ASHWAUBENON, WI (WTAQ) - Investigators say a United States Marine recruiter has been arrested for allegedly hacking into recruit Facebook and email accounts to solicit nude photos of girls.

Ashwaubenon Public Safety Lt. Jody Crocker says Andrew Curran worked at the Armed Forces Recuriting Office in the village.

Curran would gain access to recruits' email and Facebook accounts by having them submit their info to perform background checks. Investigators say he then used that information to seek out illicit photos of young women, as well as their email addresses and passwords.

Ashwaubenon Public Safety officials say Curran had conversations with more than 40 females, hacked into their computers, stole photos and reposted them onto other websites.

During a search of Curran's house, a computer with child pornography was found.

Curran was in court Tuesday and is being held on $100,000 cash bond.
