Henrico officer arrested on child pornography charges

BEDFORD, VA (WWBT) – An Attorney General's warrant was served overnight to a Henrico County police officer accused of producing child pornography.

State Police say Allen Hoffman was arrested late Friday night at a home in Bedford County.

He's currently being held at the Bedford Adult Detention Center.

In mid-May, Hoffman's western Henrico home was raided by State Police.

A search warrant shows investigators seized multiple computers hard drives, digital cameras and other devices. At the time Hoffman was still employed as an officer with Henrico County.

It's not clear if he's still working for the department. More details are expected in the week ahead as police continue their investigation.
