Chesterfield County School District would like to thank the Cheraw Police Department for their assistance on this matter:
On January 25, 2019 the Cheraw Police Department received several complaints from the parents of teenage females who stated their daughters had received snap chat or Instagram messages from someone they thought was a fellow male student at Cheraw High School.These messages included numerous request for the juvenile females to send nude photos over snap chat or Instagram. Fortunately, all of the juvenile females refused to send nude photos and reported this to their parents. Once they refused the request for nude photos the messages transitioned to threatening and harassing in nature. In at least three of the incidents the sender messaged a photo that depicted the image of a juvenile males genitalia.Based on these complaints the Cheraw Police Department launched a Criminal Investigation which consisted of the interview of all known victims and witnesses, the interview of the initial suspect, the search of the initial suspects home, the seizure of numerous electronic devices, the search of all of these electronic devices, and the issuance of dozens of search warrants for all related social media accounts and internet providers.
