HOLLY (WWJ) – The FBI is now one of many agencies investigating a 45-year-old Holly man accused of being a multi-state Internet predator.
Holly Police Chief Michael Story said they busted the suspect following the latest incident a few days ago in Idaho — thanks to a vigilant mom who reported the crime.READ MORE: Ford Adding 450 Jobs To Meet Demand For New Electric Truck
“The mother walked in on something and just didn’t let it get explained away,” Story said told WWJ Newsradio 950’s Kathryn Larson.
Officers served a search warrant on the suspect’s Village of Holly home on Valentine’s Day. They found him sitting in a car in the driveway, searched his home, and took him into custody without incident.READ MORE: Michigan TV Weatherman Out After Refusing To Get Vaccine
Story said it appears there are several additional victims across the U.S.
“The FBI — they’re moving very quickly,” Story said. “We made seizures with the search warrant. They still have to be gone through, but, as of right now, we have a cooperative suspect who’s been very forthcoming.”
Police took several electronic devices from the home.MORE NEWS: MDOT Update: Ramp Closures On I-94, I-275 As Part Of Rebuilding I-275 Project
