CARRABELLE, Fla. – Agents with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, along with Carrabelle Police Department and Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, arrested Glenn Darius Hampton May, 49, of Carrabelle, Fla. on one count of sexual battery on a child over 12 years old, but less than 18 years old, and four counts of possession of child pornography.  May is a police officer with Carrabelle PD.
 
FDLE Agents began investigating May in October at the request of Carrabelle Police Chief  Gary Hunnings after he received an allegation about May having sex with an underage female. May has been on administrative leave since that time.
 
“I immediately contacted FDLE when I learned of this allegation,” said Carrabelle Police Chief Gary Hunnings.  “May’s actions are unacceptable and appalling for anyone, especially an officer of the law.  Now that an arrest has been made, I am moving swiftly to terminate May from our police department.”
 
May was arrested this morning at his home in Carrabelle and booked into the Franklin County Jail on a $200,000 bond.  The case will be prosecuted by the Office of the State Attorney, 2nd Judicial Circuit.
