GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. - A former police officer, who
resigned just two weeks after he was hired amid charges of sending nude videos to teens, is out of jail on bond.
David Lowe has been charged with electronically furnishing obscene material to minors. Additional charges are under investigation.
Lowe is accused of lying about his age on the
website myyearbook.com to connect with teens.
Police said he would then send explicit videos of himself to those minors online. The Georgia Bureau of Investigations
got the tip and then alerted Gwinnett police, authorities said.
Gwinnett police didn't know that Lowe was one of their own until Thursday.
"It's not the kind of person that we want to work beside," Gwinnett police Cpl. Jake Smith told Channel 2's Sophia Choi.
Gwinnett police said Lowe, a husband and father of two children, had been sending nude videos to teens for months. He graduated from the department's academy on May
10 and had only been on patrol for two weeks.
Channel 2's Tony Thomas caught up with some of Lowe's neighbors baffled by the nature of his arrest.
Parents living in Lowe's Norcross apartment complex said they were happy when they learned their new neighbor was an officer, but now they aren't so sure.
"You always think it's better having a police officer living next to you, especially since I have children," Stephanie Brookover said. "Then to find out he wasn't a real good police officer is kind of nerve-wracking."
Thomas knocked on Lowe's door for a comment on the allegations he's facing, but no one was home.
Authorities said Lowe resigned from the Gwinnett County Police Department after his arrest.
Investigators may file more charges against him in this case.
