Verizon Wireless Employee Accused Of Stealing Naked Photos Off A Customer's Phone

Business Insider

A Verizon Wireless employee at a store in Florida is accused of copying naked photos off the phone of a female customer, according to police.

He allegedly shared the photos with a fellow worker. Now, both have been charged with felonies, reports the Smoking Gun.

How did the police find out about what happened?

According to The Smoking Gun, one of the employees showed the photos to a male customer. He knew the woman in the photos — a waitress at a nearby restaurant — and told her about what happened. She notified the authorities, according to the arrest report.

The Verizon employee had apparently taken the photos off her phone when helping her with a data transfer when replacing a damaged phone. 

Police got a warrant and searched the Verizon store, seizing a laptop and a pair of cell phones, where they reportedly found some photos taken from the customer's phone.

One of the workers was arrested, but the other is currently out-of-state, according to the Smoking Gun.

Luckily, someone found out in this case, but there's always a danger of this sort of thing happening to people who give up their phones for replacement or repairs. It's another reminder to keep your private files safe.
