A truck driver from Utah has been accused of taking videos and pictures of unsuspecting victims at truck stops throughout the country.
Steven Callen, a registered sex offender, has been arrested and is accused of taking pictures and videos of women and children.
According to the Layton, Utah police department, a search of Callen’s phone revealed, “A multitude of adults and juveniles in public restrooms across the nation, and appeared to be in truck stops,” KSLTV reported.
Layton Police said that Callen claimed the videos on his phone were downloaded; however, Callen’s face appeared in several of the videos, as Callen filmed in “selfie mode.”
Police say there are hundreds of victims from all over the county; the victims don’t likely know they’ve been victimized.
