The investigation into allegations against Chick reportedly began in April.
Chick eventually asked to come to the child’s Little League game, and the boy’s parents reported it to the school district, WMUR reports. Then, in July, the child’s parents found cellphones Chick had given to their son.
During a search, authorities found captured threats through call logs and bus surveillance video and audio, according to WMUR. Chick reportedly asked the boy to take photos of himself and send them to him, threatening to have a gang kill his family if the boy didn’t obey his commands.
Authorities also reportedly found a "buttonhole-style" surveillance camera, tracking devices, a large baggie of children’s underwear, and handwritten notes to the boy on how to take the photos he requested, including what to wear and how to pose.
According to the Attorney’s Office, Chick was arrested on Friday, Aug. 5, in Maine, and on Aug. 8, Chick was charged with interstate stalking.
