Three Elmhurst men have been accused of accessing people's email and online photo storage accounts and then posting photos of the victims' on a website without their permission.

Elmhurst police announced the charges Thursday.

And they are investigating more suspects and think there are more victims out there, according to Detective Sgt. Steve Mandat.

Andrew J. Kubicz, 20, of the 600 block of Babcock, was charged with five misdemeanor counts of harassment through electronic communications. He is to appear in DuPage County circuit court at 8:30 a.m. Oct. 15

Thomas J. Demars, 26, of the 100 block of North Evergreen, was charged with one misdemeanor count of conspiracy to commit computer tampering. He is to appear in DuPage County circuit court at 8:30 a.m. Oct. 30.

Steven W. Jane, 23, of the 300 block of Yorkfield, was charged with three misdemeanor counts of harassment through electronic communications. The DuPage circuit court clerk's case search does not list a court date for Jane.

All three posted bond and were released.

The victims related to these counts lived in the Elmhurst area. Police started receiving complaints in June and are still receiving them, Mandat said. All are female.

Because the department is still investigating the matter, Mandat would not say if the victims knew the suspects, exactly how many complaints have been filed, and what website to which the photographs were posted.

Anyone with information about the matter is asked to call Mandat at (630) 530-3063.
