WESTMORELAND, Tenn. -

A Westmoreland police officer faces charges after he allegedly had sexual intercourse with a minor on at least two separate occasions.

During their investigation, police discovered Officer John Puckett had also sent the underage victim naked pictures of himself and pictures of him masturbating.

The victim told police the incidents took place in both her vehicle and in Puckett's car, in different areas of Westmoreland.

Puckett, 49, lives near the victim's family and has since admitted to having a sexual relationship with the minor, according to police.

Puckett is charged with aggravated statutory rape.  He booked into the Sumner County jail on a $150,000 bond.

Puckett has resigned from his position with the police department.
