Maine School Bus Driver Accused of Stalking 8 y/o Student, Asking For Inappropriate Pictures
A Maine man, who drives a school bus in the state of New Hampshire, has been taken into custody after allegations that he harassed, stalked and asked for inappropriate photos from an 8-year-old boy who rides his school bus.
According to WGME 13, 39-year-old Michael Chick, lives in Eliot, Maine but drives a school bus in the town of Greenland, New Hampshire. Court documents reveal that Chick has been accused of not only asking for inappropriate photos of the young boy, but also for stalking him and threatening him and his family.
WGME reports that New Hampshire's Attorney General has sent a correspondence out to all parents of students who rode Chick's bus asking them to come forward with information if they ever had any similar encounters with Chick.
WGME reported on Tuesday that in addition to the allegations, the court documents also revealed disgusting details in regards to the actions taken by Chick. Those same documents allege that Chick began to give gifts to the young boy and his sister back in April of 2022.
Whenever the children were not on his bus due to absence, Chick would allegedly leave letters for them at their house explaining how much he missed them.
Additionally, Chick began asking the family if he could attend the 8-year-old boy's sporting events. The parents became quite concerned by this and asked the school system to move Chick to another bus route.
Following this series of events, the parents then found multiple cell phones in their son's possession. These phones were allegedly given to the boy by Chick so they could stay in contact. WGME reports that Chick had at least 30 phone calls with the young boy.
Police then obtained a search warrant for Chick's home where they found surveillance cameras, cell phones and GPS trackers which Chick told officials that he had placed on cars that belonged to the 8-year-old's parents.
They also located hand-written notes that Chick had written to the young boy instructing him to photograph himself in his underwear and to film 'naughty' videos of himself.
This is a developing story and we will continue to keep it updated as more information becomes available.
