Charges have been laid in a high-profile harassment case in which the alleged target was believed to be Canadian singer-songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen.
Vancouver police are not confirming that the case involves Jepsen, but said Tuesday it comes after officers received a report in March of the alleged harassment of a local, well-known celebrity.
Police had said in July they were investigating Jepsen's complaint of unauthorized use of a computer and theft of telecommunications, and that their probe had started in March.
A Vancouver Police release says Abbotsford resident Christopher David Long faces five charges, ranging from identity fraud to possession of stolen property, fraudulently obtaining telecommunications services, and unauthorized use of a computer.
Police say the 25-yearold surrendered at the Abbotsford courthouse last Friday and has been released under several conditions, while awaiting a court date, Jan. 4.
Jepsen is best known for her hit, Call Me Maybe.
