BUTTE COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE DETECTIVES ARREST 25 YEAR OLD MALE FOR CONTACTING MINORS THROUGH ELECTRONICS

Chico, Ca—Butte County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) Detectives recently received information regarding a male subject by the name of Ryan “Rebel” McClure, age 25, from Chico, who was reported to have contacted minors through electronics in an effort to meet in person.

BCSO Detectives posed as a 13 year old girl and began communicating with McClure through social media accounts. McClure sent sexually suggestive comments and was attempting to meet, who he thought was a 13 year old girl, in person. Due to McClure currently being on parole, and registered as a sex offender, for the same charges, Detective Miller was able to track his GPS monitor and take him into custody.

McClure was arrested on charges of contacting a minor to commit a felony and sending harmful matter to seduce a minor.

This investigation remains open and active. Anyone with information, or who has been contacted by McClure, is urged to contact BCSO Investigations Unit at 530-538-7671.
