Woman Suing NYPD For Freaky Pics Cop Stole From Her Phone During Arrest
A Long Island beauty says NYPD cops seized her iPhone and that one of them stole sexually explicit photos and videos meant for her boyfriend’s eyes only.
Pamela Held, 27, of Deer Park, is poised to sue the city and the Police Department, accusing a cop of invading her privacy by forwarding the provocative images from her iPhone. The steamy images of Held were sent to a personal cell phone that her lawyer said belongs to Officer Sean Christian.
“It makes me sick,” Held told the Daily News. “I don’t even want to think about what he’s done with them.”
Police sources confirmed that Christian, 41, assigned to the 104th Precinct stationhouse in Ridgewood, Queens, is the subject of an Internal Affairs investigation stemming from Held’s complaint.
Peep how this freaky son-of-a-beyotch played it to get the pics though…SMH
Held’s nightmarish ordeal unfolded the night of Feb. 6 when five cops in a police van pulled over her Sentra in Ridgewood because it had no inspection sticker. The cops found prescription drugs in the car, so the officers, including Christian, hauled Held and her pal to the stationhouse.
When cops began grilling her about her whereabouts that night, Held told them she was visiting a friend and had text messages to prove it. She gave one officer the security code to open her phone and pointed out the messages. Then police left the room, with the phone, while she was processed on misdemeanor drug charges.
“I knew they had my phone and I was bugging out,” Held told The News. “I had a bad feeling.”
She was held nearly three more hours at the stationhouse before her phone was returned and she was given a desk appearance ticket. Held said Christian followed her to her car.
“He was telling me I’m a beautiful girl and I need to stop hanging out with the wrong people,” Held recalled.
She left and later pulled over to check her phone.
“I saw this number and all the pictures and videos attached to it,” Held said.
She counted 20 nude photos and five sexy videos of her that had been forwarded to the phone number. Fearing the worst, she contacted lawyer Richard Soleymanzadeh, whose private investigator traced the mystery number on Held’s phone to Christian and learned he was a cop.
What a dumba$$, you would think that a cop would have enough sense to AT LEAST erase the evidence of his crime.
In a brief interview with The News, Christian, on the job 10 years, denied swiping the photos and videos from Held’s phone. He denied ever meeting Held or working at the 104th Precinct. Christian, who remains on the job, claimed the number that appeared on Held’s iPhone belonged to his brother.
But in a secretly recorded call to the number associated with the stolen images — and with Internal Affairs detectives listening in — Christian seemed quite familiar with Held, a source said. He chatted and flirted with Held for 50 minutes, even calling her back when the call dropped.
Detectives examined Christian’s phone records and it does not appear it ever received the photos or videos. Christian told detectives he never received Held’s images, another source said. But Soleymanzadeh contends there was no “message undelivered” notation on Held’s iPhone, indicating the images were sent.
No word on how big a check the NYPD will have to cut, but suffice to say it will put Pamela in a different tax bracket.
