A 26-year-old Minnesota man has been charged with identity theft for allegedly hacking into Facebook accounts and pilfering pictures of women to post on adult websites, The Associated Press reported.

Prosecutors say Timothy Noirjean allegedly contacted the victims online and lured them into befriending him and handing over their personal information. He then would reset passwords and posing as the account holder, contacting the victims’ friends to obtain more information.

Noirjean allegedly stole photographs of eight women and authorities said they could not do anything to get those images taken down from sexually explicit websites.

“We can hold the perpetrator accountable, but we are unable to remove their photos from the worldwide web, so they are out there, along with identifying information,” Washington County Attorney Pete Orput told AP.

According to reports, police found 235 other women’s email addresses and security information, as well as 92 folders full of women’s names and photographs.

Prosecutors have charged the Woodbury man with 13 counts of identity theft. It is also unknown whether Noirjean has hired an attorney lawyer and he was unreachable for comments yesterday, AP reported.

According to the criminal complaint, Noirjean admitted to the scheme but denied he was unaware that what he was doing was wrong.

AP said Noirjean is due in court May 26.
