CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) – A Chesapeake pastor recently arrested for computer solicitation committed the crime at the church he worked at, according to deputies.
In an affidavit obtained by WAVY.com, a Spotsylvania County sheriff’s deputy and detective conducted an undercover chat investigation July 18, 2012. The deputy went into a Yahoo! chat room and was messaged by a user with the screen name “chiefmojorisin420.”
At first, the chatting was not criminal, the affidavit said. The suspect, later identified as Haden Conrad, said he was a married man who lived about two hours away from the deputy, who was posing as a 14-year-old girl. The suspect was told he was speaking with a teen.
The next day, the deputy was messaged by the same suspect and the suspect was again told he was speaking with a 14-year-old girl.
According to the affidavit, the deputy sent the suspect a decoy photograph of herself when she was younger and the suspect then sent a non-sexual photograph of himself fishing.
The affidavit says the suspect requested the deputy send him a photograph of her with a sign that said “hi chiefmojorising420” to ensure she was not a “50 year old fat guy.”
The detective took a photo of the deputy holding the sign and sent it to the suspect. That was when the subject of the chat became sexual in nature.
