A T-Mobile employee has been charged with computer trespass after a customer at the store has accused him of forwarding a picture message from her phone to his personal tablet.



Corinthian Malachi Clemons, 34, of Chesapeake, was charged on Thursday. A police officer was called to the T-Mobile store in the 1200 block of North Main Street about the incident.

According to the police investigation, the victim had gone to the store to see if anything could be done to repair her cellphone, which had a damaged screen. Clemons allegedly took the phone to the back of the store to attempt to repair it and then returned it unrepaired, according to city spokeswoman Diana Klink.

“When the victim later checked her messages, she discovered a picture message sent to a number she didn’t recognize, which was found to be Clemons’ personal tablet device,” Klink wrote.

Clemons was arrested on a charge of computer trespass with damage and is at Western Tidewater Regional Jail on a $2,500 bond.
