JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A Jacksonville man was charged with hacking into the emails of dozens of people, including Christina Aguilera, Scarlett Johansson and Mila Kunis, in a computer invasion scheme that targeted Hollywood celebrities, according to documents released Wednesday.

Christopher Chaney, 35, hacked Google, Apple and Yahoo email accounts beginning last November and December, then hijacked the forwarding feature so that a copy of every email received was sent "virtually instantaneously" to an email account he controlled, according to an indictment handed up Tuesday by a federal grand jury in Los Angeles.

Chaney was arrested by the FBI at his Westside home Wednesday morning.

There were more than 50 victims, including actress Renee Olstead, according to the indictment.
