TUCSON, Ariz. -- Authorities say a former Tucson police officer has been accused of computer tampering.

Tucson police say Andrea Middleton was indicted on three counts Friday, a day after she resigned from the department.

She was hired in September 2005 and placed on paid administrative leave last November when computer tampering allegations surfaced.

Police say criminal and administrative investigations were begun after a department member learned of the alleged and brought it to the attention of internal affairs.

The case was presented to the Pima County Attorney's Office and later to the county grand jury.

Details haven't been released as police say an administrative investigation still in ongoing.

Authorities didn't immediately know Friday if Middleton has an attorney yet for her case.
