VANCOUVER - Charges have been approved in a criminal harassment investigation believed to be linked to hacked naked photos of Mission, BC, songstress Carly Rae Jepsen.

Vancouver police said on Tuesday Christopher David Long, 25, of Abbotsford, BC has been charged with fraudulently obtaining telecommunications services, unauthorized use of a computer, mischief to data, identity fraud and possession of stolen property.

Police are only saying that the case relates to a police report in March, suggesting someone harassed and hacked the computer of a "local, well-known celebrity."

In July, the detachment had said it was investigating "online images" of Jepsen after the "Call Me Maybe" artist called them in March to report stolen items.

Long is due in court Jan. 2, 2013.

Jepsen was nominated for two Grammys last week.

The 27-year-old singer is expected back in Mission on Dec. 17 for a concert.
