- He was a no-show at his formal court arraignment Friday and is now a wanted fugitive.
A Hanover man accused of posting nude photos of his ex-girlfriend on Craigslist is now a wanted fugitive.
Brett McEvers, 35, of 406 E. Walnut St., was supposed to appear in York County Court on Friday for his formal court arraignment but was a no-show, according to court records.
Common Pleas Judge Maria Musti Cook revoked McEvers' bail and issued a bench warrant for his arrest, records state.
McEvers had been free on $2,000 unsecured bail, charged with unlawful dissemination of an intimate image, which is a second-degree misdemeanor, according to court records. Unsecured bail means he didn't have to post any money to remain free.
'Casual encounters': On May 16, West York Police Patrolman Michael Mendez Sr. received a call from a borough woman complaining there were naked photos of her on Craigslist, in the "casual encounters" section, according to court documents.
She told the officer she realized what was going on when she received a call from a friend who asked her why she was posting nude pictures of herself, documents state.
Also posted was a photo of two people having sex, but she wasn't in that photo, police said.
Craigslist took down the posting, according to documents.
The woman told Mendez she had previously sent the naked photos of herself to her former boyfriend — McEvers — and that she had recently broken up with him, documents state.
Mendez spoke with McEvers the next day.
McEvers denied posting the photos and claimed someone else posted them from his cellphone, documents allege. However, he declined to provide a name.
"I ain't a snitch," he allegedly said, according to documents. He also told Mendez that since the photos were posted to Craigslist from his cellphone, "I take full responsibility for it," documents state.
A subsequent forensic analysis of McEvers' phone established the photos were, in fact, posted on Craigslist from his phone, according to police.
Court records do not list a defense attorney for McEvers.
If you know his whereabouts, you can call 911.
