Several phone company employees were busted for stealing customer’s nude pictures from a cell phone, according to reports.

Two Verizon employees have been arrested for allegedly stealing nude photos of a female customer’s phone and then passing the photos around.

According to the report, the staff members were working in the Verizon store in Bartow, Florida, when a waitress came into the store and one of the men transferred her data from an old phone to a new one. However, she was not aware that one of the men allegedly copied some of the pictures from the phone memory and kept them to himself.

According to reports, the matter came to light when a waiter entered the shop premises and the staff decided to share photos of the female. The waiter was a friend of the woman and told her about the incident.

The woman called police and they searched the employees' personal computers, and found copies of the stolen photos. Police said that one of the defendants even admitted they have done this at least one time in the past.

One of the men, Gregory Lampert, 26, is being charged with two felony counts of stolen property and offenses against computer users, and faces a charge of petty theft.

The other man is out of state and when he returns to Florida, he will face charges.
