OHIO COUNTY, W Va. (WTRF) - A Bethlehem Police officer turned himself into the Ohio County Sheriff's Office on charges of stalking and violation of a safety order.

According to Sheriff Tom Howard, Daniel Eastham turned himself in on Tuesday morning.

Bethlehem Mayor Tim Bishop has released an official statement on the matter.
