Seeking Information From Other Potential Victims for Invasion of Personal Privacy Case (Photo) - 08/07/19

Date and Time: Wednesday, July 17, 2019 at 5:18 pm

Victim: 31 year old, female

Arrested: Jesse James Calkins, 35 year old male, Redmond Resident

Vehicle: White, 2001, Ford Escape

On July 17, 2019  at about 5:18 pm Officers with The Bend Police Department were dispatched to Empire Car Wash and Gorilla Growlers at the north end of Bend off of Empire Avenue regarding an adult male that was using a selfie stick to take photographs of a female patron. The adult female victim reported that she observed the male suspect taking photographs up her skirt as she was cleaning her vehicle.

Officers responded to the business and were unable to locate the male suspect because after he was confronted by the victim, he left the scene prior to their arrival.

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

On Thursday, August 8, 2019 at about 8:58 am, officers with the Bend Police Department contacted Jesse Calkins, during a traffic stop. Jesse Calkins was arrested and taken into custody.  Search warrants were served on the Ford Escape he was driving and at his residence in Redmond.

Jesse Calkins was arrested and lodged at the Deschutes County Adult Jail on the charges of Invasion of Personal Privacy in the second degree and a warrant for a probation violation. 

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

Photographs of Jesse Calkins and his vehicle are included in this release.  If anyone has information regarding this investigation, please contact the Bend Police Department at 541-693-6911.

The Bend Police would like to remind citizens to be aware of their surroundings and report any suspicious behavior to the non emergency line at 541-693-6911.
