BUFFALO -- Christopher Chase, 49, of Williamsville, was arrested and charged by criminal complaint with enticement of a minor. The charge carries a maximum of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
The following day, on March 11, Chase texted the female and asked, “Now the evil question are you really 18.” In the text, the female indicated that she was only 15 years-old. The defendant, however, continued to contact the female and request “naughty photos.” Following graphic conversation during which Chase described in detail sexual activities with the female, on March 29, the defendant arranged to meet the female at Walgreens in Depew on Sunday, in order to have sex with her.
Shortly before the appointed meeting time, special agents with Homeland Security Investigations observed Chase’s car parked just down the street from the Walgreens where he had arranged to meet the female. After he pulled into the Walgreens parking lot, defendant was placed under arrest. He was found to possess condoms and sex lubricant.
