Darreck Michael Enciso
If one can be a fan of a police department I am a huge fan of the Huntington Beach, California, Police Department. For years they’ve been in the forefront of catching craigslist creepers in their area. As an aside creeper is the term we used where I grow up for guys who like children. Getting back to the subject at hand I’m afraid that the HBPD may have dripped the ball in this case, at least in the way the incident is being reported.
27-year-old Darreck Michael Enciso, of Adelanto, California, is accused of allegedly posting an ad for Disneyland tickets on craigslist in exchange for what some reports are calling very explicit sex acts. Enciso is a former dishwasher at a Disneyland resort. The Huntington Beach Police Department responded to the ad posing as a 14-year-old girl. Enciso allegedly had no problem with the girl being 14. They are said to have arranged to meet for sex in exchange for the tickets and the time of his arrest the suspect had condoms on him.
Now, while I’m not defending the suspect, because by most accounts he didn’t have problems with the ‘girl’ being underage, my problem was with how the ad was posted or at least how it’s being reported how it was posted.
Enciso is accused of posting a Craigslist ad on July 1 seeking women willing to engage in sex acts in exchange for tickets to the Disneyland parks.
—The OC Register
Prosecutors say Enciso allegedly posted a Craigslist ad dated July 1 seeking women who would engage in sexual acts in exchange for tickets to Disneyland.
On July 1, 2015, Enciso is accused of posting an ad on Craigslist seeking women willing to engage in sex acts in exchange for tickets to the Disneyland parks.
—Orange County DA’s office press release
All the reports I’ve read said that Enciso placed an ad looking for women. To me that implies an adult. Would the HBPD posing as an underage female not be considered a form of entrapment? Don’t get me wrong. I want to see this guy put away in the unhappiest place on earth but I want to make sure he’s there the right way. It could be that he did post an ad making an allusion to minors but that’s now how it’s been reported.
Either way law enforcement is looking for other possible victims…
Investigators believe Enciso previously posted similar advertisements on Craigslist. Anyone with additional information is asked to contact Supervising Dist. Atty. Investigator Mark Gutierrez at (714) 347-8794.
Hopefully the HBPD has not let their fanboy down and it’s just a case of miscommunication to the press.
I’ve posted about the modeling scam many times before. Basically how it works is an online predator will pose as someone in charge of a modeling agency and will solicit underage girls for explicit photos or even try to get the girls to travel them for either molestation or child prostitution. I’ve posted about the scam being used on MySpace, Facebook, and craigslist so it should come as no surprise it’s showing up on Kik.
An unnamed man from Tallmadge, Ohio, is being investigated after his wife allegedly found a secret cell phone he was using to solicit underage girls on Kik, one may have even been as young as 12. He would allegedly tell the girls that he would need the photos in order to see if he would take them on as clients.
Normally this is where I would tell parents to make sure they know which apps their kids are using and who their friends on those apps are. However this time I’m going to add that maybe you should talk to your daughters, and sons if they’re aspiring models, that authentic modeling agencies probably wouldn’t circumvent parents in searching for talent and they definitely wouldn’t use Kik. You may also want to remind them that not everyone can make it into modeling and that it’s one of those ‘win the lottery type odds’ kind of careers.
UPDATE 7/27/2015: The suspect has been identified as 28-year-old Justin Snyder.
Nathan Alexander Bryan (HULK SIT BABY)
The FBI recently arrested 39-year-old Nathan Bryan, of Bradenton, Florida, for allegedly trying to solicit children for sex by advertising his babysitting services on craigslist. Federal investigators believe that Bryan was using these ads to gain access to kids.
Reports say that the FBI posed as a father who was offering their child for sex on craigslist when they were contacted by Bryan.
For more than a year, the FBI says Bryan has been chatting online with an undercover agent posing as the father of an 8-year-old boy. Investigators say Bryan spelled out what he’d like to do to the child saying, “I just want to smell him and taste him.”
The feds set up a meeting place where Bryant was arrested. They’re also requesting help from the public if they had any kind of baby sitting contact with Bryan.
The CETF is asking anyone who has information about this matter or who may have hired Bryan for the above services to contact the FBI Tampa Field Office at 1-866-838-1153 or at [email protected]
What really surprised me was the reaction by his landlord. He didn’t approve of what Bryan did but…
“I thought he was very dedicated to the children he took care of. And he loved his nannying. Sure, I knew he was getting jobs by posting, but everyone uses Craigslist. It didn’t bring up any red flags or anything,” the landlord tells 10 News.
Yes, everyone uses craigslist, especially predators.
The unconscious Tim LeBlanc
27-year-old Tim LeBlanc, of Spring Valley, California, allegedly tried to get a 12-year-old girl into his vehicle in the middle of the night. He allegedly met the girl on Instagram and communicated with her on Kik. What he didn’t figure on was a vigilant father.
The girl’s father claims he routinely gets up in the middle of the night to check on hos kids. He says he found his daughter’s window open then hopped in his vehicle to go find her. He is said to have found her down the street getting into LeBlanc’s vehicle. LeBlanc allegedly claimed to the man he was only 16 and eventually took a swing at the man. The father is said to have knocked out LeBlanc with a single punch, hence the picture above.
Good on this dad for being so attentive. Now while I’m not deriding this father I personally am of the opinion that 12-year-olds do not need to be on any social apps at that age. I get the feeling that his daughter won’t be going forward.
Richard Lester Biggs
Back in December of 2014 52-year-old Richard Lester Biggs of Clackamas County, Oregon, allegedly placed a craigslist ad entitled “Older for younger” and that he had a fantasy of being with younger women. The ad gets creepier from there…
“I want to see if I can find a younger woman who maybe has always wanted to be with an older man, maybe a Daddy’s Girl.”
Biggs got a response to his ad from a 13-year-old girl whose house he showed up to with booze, lube, and a sex toy. The girl refused to leave the house and when Biggs pulled away he was stopped and arrested by Clackamas County Sheriff’s deputies. The entire meeting was a police sting targeting possible craigslist predators.
Well, they caught one because recently Biggs pleaded guilty to child corruption charges and was sentenced to 30 days behind bars and 3 years probation. Biggs’ attorney had this to say prior to sentencing…
“My client is not a predator nor is there a substantial risk of recidivism,”
Right, because all sorts of normal people bring dildos and lube to a 13-year-old girl’s house.
Former middle school football coach Robert Lesnau, of the Detroit area, was arrested back in March for allegedly soliciting sex from a six-year-old girl through craigslist.
According to federal investigators Lesnau contacted a woman on craigslist for her ‘adult services’. Allegedly Lesnau heard the woman’s six-year-old daughter crying in the background and asked how much would it be to have sex with the girl. The woman ended the phone call and reported it to authorities. The FBI stepped in and had the woman call back saying that she was desperate for money and was willing to entertain Lesnau’s vile request.
Let’s top right there for a moment. I can already hear the perv patrol crying and gnashing their teeth while wailing claims of entrapment. This is not entrapment. If the reports are correct, which I’m going to assume they are, the suspect was the first person to approach the subject of having sex with her daughter. If law enforcement were the ones to first bring it up then it would be entrapment. Now back to our story.
Besides, after you read this I don’t think anyone would believe a claim of entrapment…
A series of texts were exchanged, during which Lesnau asked for topless photos of the mother and daughter to ensure they were “for real,” asked about the child’s prior sexual experience and offered to pay $200, the FBI says.
Conversation became more graphic in a phone call the following day, during which the FBI says Lesnau said he wanted to watch the mother and daughter “play around together” with adult toys.
Investigators set up a meeting place at a Rochester motel where Lesnau was arrested.
Lesnau’s attorney is saying that the criminal complaint is one-sided and Lesnau is looking forward to his day in court. I can’t imagine what he could possibly present that would exonerate him.
Anyway once again craigslist is the go to place for pedophiles to find their next victims and craigslist still refuses to do anything about it. I don’t ever remember the newspaper classifieds being used for child rape back in the day.
Lesnau’s former school says none of the students he coached have claimed to have been abused.
Ever since To Catch A Predator started airing I would love the excuses the pervs would use when they got caught. The most popular one was “I was just going to hang out.” Right, a middle-aged man who IM’d an underage girl all about sex who brought condoms and wine coolers was just there to hang out. So I kind of took interest in what 21-year-old Matthew Kaius Christianson of Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota had to say when he was arrested.
Christianson allegedly solicited a 15-year-old girl for oral sex on MeetMe. I usually describe MeetMe as the low rent spiritual successor to MySpace. While its terns of service allow for anyone over 13 to be on their site it’s mostly used for hooking up.
In this case the girl was real and eventually the police got involved. Christianson allegedly told police he would solicit girls on MeetMe to “build up his confidence when talking with females.” Building your confidence is one thing but asking a minor for a mouth hug is definitely another. He’s probably one of these guys who can’t even approach a women in meat space but is probably a total misogynistic assclown online who calls women ‘bb’ and says things like ‘tits or GTFO’. Unfortunately the internet is just a breeding ground for cretins like this and MeetMe seems to be ground zero.
27-year-old Jonathan Blum is a high school teacher in the Bronx although that may not make him the brightest bulb. New York investigators say that Blum posted a craigslist ad allegedly looking for sex with someone underage who was “interested in messing around with a licensed real teacher.” He might as well have just called the police to turn himself in to eliminate the middle man. Instead police posed as a 14-year-old girl and were able to arrest Blum at a pre-arranged meeting place.
At least this exposed a teacher as an alleged predator before he could hopefully harm any kids.
43-year-old Bradley Kosmatka of Cedarburg, Wisconsin, was recently arrested on charges of attempted child enticement, attempted sexual assault of a child under 16 and trafficking of a child. It all started when a state investigator found an ad in the craigslist personals that was entitled…
“Donate for the Mom and daughter fantasy — m4ww — 40 (Grafton)”
Ick. For the uninitiated this usually means that someone wants to ‘have sex’ with a mother and her underage daughter, but mostly just the underage daughter. Like I said, ick.
Thankfully the investigator responded to the ad posing as a mother with two daughters ages 14 and 11. Kosmatka allegedly wanted the 14-year-old to join in while the 11-year-old watched.
Kosmatka was arrested at a McDonald’s, naturally, where he is said to have denied wanting to have sex with the girl and that he was going to give the mother money for a baby sitter.
As I’ve said before there actually are parents out there who are willing to loan their kids to pedophiles for either money or joining in and craigslist continues to turn a blind eye to them.
Police say that 58-year-old Donald Tisdale of Albertville, Minnesota, posted the following ad on the casual encounters section of craigslist…
“Who’s playing hooky from school today???” was posted in the casual encounters section on Monday, Feb. 23.
The ad invited students who were home from school on President’s Day to contact the ad’s author to see “how I can make your day.” The ad’s author said he was a middle-aged man and that responders “need to be Ok with that.” He said in the ad he was fun, interesting and has “a great sense of humor.”
Spoiler alert. he was contacted by law enforcement posing as a 14-year-old girl. He allegedly responded to the girl by sending her a pic of his junk and followed it up with the following message…
It was followed by a message that reads: “do you want it, do you want to touch it, suck it and feel it in you? Can I see a xxx pic of you?”
He was arrested at a local restaurant of course.
Craigslist could cut these ads off at the source but they choose not to.
