Phoenix police officer arrested for secret nude photos

PHOENIX, AZ - A Phoenix police officer has been arrested for taking nude photographs of a woman without her permission or knowledge, police reports show. Officer Jason Toth, a 25-year veteran assigned to the airport bureau, was arrested Thursday after a woman reported that he had sent her a text message of her with her breasts exposed while she was asleep. “It’s not only a complete violation of law but also a complete violation of her privacy,” said Chandler police Sgt. Joe Favazzo. The woman, who lives in Chandler, reported the incident to police on March 6, records show. ABC15 is not identifying the woman because she is the victim of a crime. She said she and Toth had carried on a short relationship. When it ended, Toth sent her a text message saying “I will miss these.” That text was sent with a photo of “her shirt being lifted up with her breasts exposed while she was asleep,” records show. “That certainly concerned her and scared her,” Favazzo said. Chandler detectives served a pair of search warrants, seizing two of Toth’s cell phones. He was arrested on suspicion of “surreptitious photographing,” which is a class five felony. His case has been forwarded to the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office. However, the ABC15 Investigators discovered that the incident wasn’t the first time Toth had been accused of something like this. In 2010, Toth was accused by a TSA employee of sending “nude pictures to her, of her, as well as harassing text messages.” That woman decided not to press charges. Phoenix Police told ABC15 that the department has launched its own investigation, placed Toth on administrative leave and have taken his badge and gun. Contact ABC15 Investigator Dave Biscobing at
