MORRISTOWN (WATE) – A Morristown man was arrested after police say he allegedly remotely wiped nude photographs of his underage girlfriend from his iPhone.

Darvel Walker, 19, is charged with tampering with evidence. Police say the phone was confiscated during a traffic stop on February 23. They say Walker gave officers permission to search his phone, and they found what they said were several nude images of the underage girl, who was a passenger in the vehicle.

Once detectives learned the phone was password protected, they contacted Walker to get the passcode, but then discovered the photos were gone.

Walker was held on $25,000 bond.
