Bend Police are seeking additional victims of a Redmond man who allegedly took upskirt photos of a woman in a public place.

Jesse James Calkins, 35, was allegedly seen on video surveillance of using a selfie stick to record images from under a woman’s skirt at the Empire Car Wash in Bend.

The case began around 5 p.m., July 17 when officers were called to the car wash off Empire Avenue after a woman said she’d “felt the presence” of a man recording her as she cleaned her vehicle and confronted him, according to Bend Lt. Juli McConkey. The man was gone by the time officers arrived.

Officers pursued the case in the following weeks using video surveillance and identified Calkins and his 2001 Ford Escape.

On Tuesday, police looking for Calkins spotted him in his vehicle and pulled him over. He was arrested and officers searched his vehicle and home in Redmond. They allegedly located additional evidence, McConkey said.

Calkins is housed in the Deschutes County jail, charged with one count of invasion of privacy.

In a prior case, in 2016, he pleaded guilty in Marion County Circuit Court to one count of invasion of privacy for recording a woman “in a state of nudity and in a place and circumstance where she had a reasonable expectation of personal privacy,” according to court documents.

The offense occurred at 435 Liberty St. NE in Salem, the current location of a Rite Aid.
