Pamela Held, 27, has accused New York police officer Sean Christian of stealing nude picture messages from her iPhone
A woman plans to sue the New York Police Department for invasion of privacy after an officer allegedly stole sexy photographs from her iPhone.
Pamela Held, 27, took nude photos of herself in provocative poses on her mobile phone to send to her boyfriend.
But when police seized her phone after stopping her for an alleged traffic violation, she claims officer Sean Christian found the raunchy images stored on her phone and sent them to his own mobile.
Ms Held, from Deer Park, Long Island, told the New York Daily News: 'It makes me sick. I don’t even want to think about what he’s done with them.'
Police sources told the Daily News that officer Christian, 41, is the subject of an Internal Affairs investigation stemming from Held’s complaint.
It comes after Ms Held was pulled over by five police officers on February 6 because her car didn't have an inspection sticker.
The officers found prescription drugs in her car so took both Ms Held and the friend she was travelling with to the police station.
When asked by officers where she had been that evening, she told them she had visited a friend and could prove it with text messages on her phone.
She then gave then her security pin number so they could look at the messages.
