— A firefighter in the towns of Delmar and Loudonville has been arrested after a two-week investigation concerning alleged inappropriate communications online.

Police said Timothy M. Haverly, 32, of 28 West Poplar Drive in Delmar, had allegedly engaged in inappropriate online involvement with a person he perceived to be a 13-year-old girl. Local detectives were notified of an investigation already under way by police in Fairfax, Va.

During the two-week investigation, Haverly allegedly spoke with undercover officers in both Bethlehem and Fairfax, whom he believed to be underage girls.

Detective Sgt. Adam Hornick said police are awaiting a search warrant on Haverly’s computer.

“We will be looking into if any of the images found contain local individuals,” said Hornick.

Police are also investigating if Haverly possibly had physical contact with any local underage individuals.

According to court documents, Haverly first began chatting with a person he believed to be a 13-year- old girl in Virginia on March 19. The conversation became sexual in nature, and Haverly allegedly sent a video of himself masturbating to the “girl.”

On March 20, court documents said Haverly again began to send online messages to a girl he thought to be 13. He allegedly then sent sexual images to the “girl.”

“Specifically, Haverly did send images of his penis to solicit the female to engage in a sexual behavior by masturbating,” read the court document.

On March 28, police said Haverly engaged in a conversation sexual in nature with someone he believed to be a 15-year-old girl. During that incident, court documents showed Haverly allegedly invited the girl to a hotel room to “share the bed.”

Bethlehem police did not say what led Fairfax police to begin their investigation into Haverly’s alleged activities.

On the day of his arrest, Haverly was allegedly found to be in the possession of a still photograph on his computer of a girl in between the ages of 9 to 12 in a sexually compromising position. Court documents also showed he was in the possession of a dagger, a “dangerous knife,” a dirk, a stiletto knife, an imitation pistol, two 12-inch daggers found in his bedroom, more than 16 grams of marijuana and a pipe.
