GREENEVILLE, TN - Federal authorities have charged a Greenville police officer with possessing and receiving child pornography.

The Johnson City Press reports Herbert Eugene Miller is accused of downloading more than 80 images of children to a laptop computer in a police patrol car.

Court documents show that another officer notified a supervisor after finding questionable search terms on the computer.

The FBI said Miller was assigned to the car during the time when the searches were conducted.

It was unclear whether Miller has an attorney. He has a hearing scheduled on Tuesday.
