Penis pictures sent from stolen phones
September 8, 2010
A serial burglar who photographed his penis with mobile phones he stole — and then sent the images to some owners' friends — told police after his arrest he'd been "off me head for a while".
Shane Anthony Willis, 33, sent the photos via MMS to unsuspecting, innocent and horrified victims that included teenage girls.
The victim of one phone theft, a student at a Melbourne private school, was reported to his Year 11 head teacher after the recipient, an angry friend, received an image.
Melbourne Magistrates Court yesterday heard the student, 17, whose parents were contacted by the school, was further humiliated and embarrassed when he learned others were sent the photo.
After Willis avoided arrest in February by jumping from a second-storey window, detectives found a large amount of stolen property in the North Fitzroy house.
In a police summary tendered in court by prosecutor Michael Robinson, investigators realised during a search of the house that Willis had taken photos of his penis inside those premises and sent the images to various contacts whose details were stored inside the stolen phones.
The background of some of the images was of the premises, including curtains and a TV, and when Willis' three-month crime spree ended last April with his arrest in Bendigo, he was asked to comment.
He replied: "Don't know about that."
"I've been off me head for a while ... so ... on drugs, so I couldn't tell you what I've done."
He admitted he had been "running amok" and doing "stupid things".
During the mostly no-comment interview, Willis consented to police taking photos of his penis.
Willis' brazen burglaries and thefts — committed during the evening, night or early morning, with people mostly awake in their homes — netted him property valued at more than $83,000.
The items also included cash, credit cards, jewellery and computers, and once at the Como Cricket Club change rooms he stole seven mobile phones and 13 wallets owned by 14 players, including umpires, during a match.
"The impact on all of the victims was quite profound, leaving them feeling violated and vulnerable as many victims had children inside the houses at the time ..." the summary said.
The crimes were committed in suburbs that included North Carlton, Balaclava, South Yarra, St Kilda and surrounding areas.
Defence lawyer Chester Metcalfe said Willis, who pleaded guilty to more than 60 charges that included aggravated burglary, theft and using a carriage service to menace, would not apply for bail.
Magistrate Donna Bakos remanded him in custody for a plea hearing in the County Court in November.
