Monongalia County Sheriff’s Office detectives arrested a Morgantown man Tuesday on a charge of use of obscene matter with intent to seduce a minor.

Detectives said Chadwick Alt, 35, made contact in February with an undercover investigator from the Ohio Attorney General’s Office Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) who was posing as a 12-year-old female using a messaging app. 

Detectives said Alt talked about sex, sent obscene photographs and discussed going to Ohio to meet with the underage female.

While executing a search warrant at Alt’s home and office, detectives and West Virginia University Police Department investigators seized electronic items from both locations, detectives said.

Alt was arrested and taken to the North Central Regional Jail. His bond was set at $25,000.
