FARMINGTON — A Franklin County grand jury indicted a Pennsylvania car salesman Thursday on a charge of using a buyer’s cellphone to send himself nude pictures of her.

Kevin P. Rennie, 32, of Philadelphia was indicted on a felony charge of aggravated criminal invasion of computer privacy. 

Farmington police arrested Rennie on March 20 after a woman called police to report what she believed was an unlawful exchange of sexually explicit photographs. The woman told police she had worked with a salesman named Kevin from Philadelphia on March 19 at Tinny’s Automotive Outlet in Farmington, according to Farmington police officer Jacob Richards’ affidavit filed with the court.

Tinny’s had hired a marketing firm to do a promotional event and Rennie was a subcontracted sales representative for the marketing firm, Deputy Police Chief Shane Cote previously said.

The woman told police the salesman took her phone to sync the Bluetooth in the car.

 “When she got home and logged into her computer, which shares files and messages with her phone, she could see where Kevin had accessed previously deleted nude photos of her meant for her boyfriend and sent them to his number, which she assumed to be his as it was a Philadelphia area number,” according to the affidavit.


Richards put the number into Facebook and it came back as belonging to Rennie, who admitted going into the woman’s cellphone and sending  himself the nude photos, Richards wrote.

The dealership told police it severed ties with the marketing firm.
