ATLANTA (AP) - An Atlanta-area cellphone repair technician is accused of hacking into a female customer’s phone and sending himself pictures of the woman.

Milton police tell WSB-TV (https://2wsb.tv/2bNVxLs ) that Harmeet Singh was arrested last week and charged with felony computer invasion of privacy.

Police spokesman Lt. Charles Barstow says the customer brought her broken cellphone to a store in June.

When she got it back, Barstow says the woman noticed personal pictures from her phone had been messaged to a number she didn’t recognize. Barstow says the victim questioned Singh, who told her it was his number on the phone.

Barstow says detectives are looking to see if the suspect hacked any other customers’ phones.

It’s unclear if Singh has an attorney.
