A Hanover man was arrested Wednesday morning for allegedly sending sexually explicit and suggestive text messages and pictures to a juvenile.
Troopers and detectives from the Indiana State Police Post at Versailles and Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department deputies at about 10 a.m. served a search warrant at the home of Christopher E. Chandler, 29, at 64 S.W. Paine Street. The warrant was the result of a month-long investigation into Chandler for allegedly contacting the juvenile via the Internet and text message and sending the messages and photos.
Chandler was arrested and charged with child solicitation, a class C Felony and incarcerated at the Jefferson County Jail.
This investigation is continuing and the lead investigator, Detective Dan Elmore, is asking any other juvenile who may have been contacted by Chandler via a social networking site or text message, to either contact him directly, or have your parent or guardian contact him at the Indiana State Police Post at Versailles at 812-689-5000.
The Jefferson County Prosecutor’s Office also assisted in this investigation.
