Bend Police Looking For More Victims in Privacy Invasion Case


Bend Police is looking for more potential victims in a personal privacy invasion case that landed a Redmond man in jail last month.

Lt. Juli McConkey said in a release that on July 17, Bend Police were dispatched to the Empire Car Wash and Gorilla Growlers on the north end of Bend off Empire Avenue regarding a man using a selfie stick to photograph a female customer.

The woman reported that she saw the man taking pictures up her skirt as she was cleaning her vehicle.

The woman confronted the man and he left the scene before officers arrived.

In the following weeks, officers gathered information, including video surveillance, and identified the male suspect as Jesse James Calkins and the vehicle he was driving, an older model white Ford Escape.

Calkins, 35, of Redmond, was arrested and taken to the Deschutes County Jail on second degree invasion of personal privacy and a probation violation warrant.

Based on evidence that has been gathered during the investigation and through the search warrant, the Bend Police believes there are more victims with the possibility of similar circumstances.

If anyone has information regarding this investigation, please contact the Bend Police Department at 541-693-6911.
