CUMBERLAND, VA (WWBT) -

Virginia State Police on Thursday arrested a former Farmville police officer on multiple felony charges related to child porn.

Francis D. Marrin was arrested in Cumberland without incident on Thursday morning, State Police said. According to authorities, the charges stem from incidents in April involving Marrin and a 16-year-old female victim. During the course of their investigation, state police also identified a second teenage female victim.

This week, a Cumberland grand jury handed down 33 felony indictments against Marrin, which included production and possession of child pornography, unlawful filming of a minor and aggravated sexual battery. Marrin, 42, is currently being held without bail in the Piedmont Regional Jail in Farmville.

According to Farmville Deputy Town Treasurer Audrey Napier, Marrin is a former officer with the Farmville Police Department.  Napier says Marrin's employment ended more than five years ago.
