    VANCOUVER - 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 Department are not confirming that the case involves Jepsen, but said today 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, B.C., 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-year-old surrendered at the Abbotsford courthouse last Friday and has been released under several conditions, while awaiting a court date, Jan. 4, in that Fraser Valley city.

    The spokesman would not confirm a website's claim that the matter involved the alleged theft of nude photos of the 27-year-old singer from Mission, famous for her number-one song "Call Me, Maybe."
