PALM BEACH, Fla. -- A Palm Beach County Sheriff's dispatcher has resigned after he was accused of tapping into a female coworker's cell phone, fetching explicit photos she took of her flashing her breasts and sending them to his email.

Omar Trevino, 31, also admitted rummaging through other female coworkers' phones when they were left unattended during shifts at sheriff's headquarters, investigators said.

Trevino was arrested in July and charged with unlawful use of a computer or cellular phone. He was subsequently put on paid administrative leave.

The case was closed Oct. 3 when Trevino agreed to pre-trial diversion. The details of that program were not immediately available. On the same day, Trevino emailed a letter of resignation, Palm Beach County Sheriff's spokeswoman Teri Barbera said. He came in and signed it shortly thereafter. His resignation is effective Oct. 3, Barbera said.

Trevino began work with the Sheriff's office in June 2005. A coworker alerted authorities that Trevino had showed him a picture of two women exposing their breasts. The women were dispatchers, and Trevino told the man he got the photos off a coworker's phone while she went on break, the arrest report said.

Detectives tracked down the woman and her phone and determined the photo was sent to Trevino's email May 3 at 9:06 a.m., a time when Trevino was relieving the woman at her workstation while she went on a 15-minute break.

The woman told detectives the photo was taken at a gathering at a friend's house, according to the arrest report. The women were talking about Christmas cards and took the pictures as a joke.
