Felony Charge For Man Who Used AirDrop To Send Naked Selfies To Strangers

An Oklahoma man is facing an indecent exposure charge after allegedly using AirDrop to send explicit photos of himself to employees at a real estate firm where he was applying for an apartment, court records show.

Police say Staijeck Helm, 23, earlier this month used the AirDrop feature on his phone to transmit photos of his “private parts and of himself naked in front of a mirror,” according to a probable cause filing.

Investigators described the alleged offense as “indecent exposure via digital means.”

Helm, seen at right, went to a Tulsa realtor to apply for an apartment, cops say. An employee of the firm told police that they directed Helm to “sit at a computer for the application process.”

While Helm was filling out the application, two workers received AirDrop notifications on their phones. “Curious as to what the contents were, they both accepted the AirDrop,” only to discover the naked selfies.

Helm was arrested and booked into the county jail on the felony count. He was later released on $2000 bond and is scheduled for arraignment on June 20.

It does not appear that Helm, who lives with his parents, got the desired apartment.
