Chairez is being held in the Collin County Detention Facility.

Collin County Sheriff Jim Skinner stated, “The shocking quantity of child pornography seized in this investigation reminds us how important it is for parents to diligently monitor their children’s on-line activities. Child predators seek to exploit children whose parents don’t know, or don’t care about, the identities of the individuals who communicate with them over the web. We ask all parents to be vigilant and report any suspicious social-media activity to law enforcement.”

We want to thank the Texas Department of Public Safety and Wylie Police Department for their assistance in this investigation.
