A Hamilton County man is accused of catfishing a 14-year-old girl he met on Snapchat and exchanging sex with her for vapes.
According to police, Cicero resident Jacob Scott Glenn, 24, posed as a 16-year-old girl when he established contact with the victim on Snapchat. Using the false identity, he lured the minor into an encounter under the pretense of selling her e-cigarettes. Then he took her to a second location and demanded sex for them instead.
Court documents state the minor left her house on Christmas by climbing out a window just after midnight. But rather than the female teen she expected to meet, the 14-year-old was surprised to see Glenn, an adult man. He convinced her to ride with him to a Pilot Travel Center in Daleville, across the Delaware County line. It was only then, after distancing the girl from her home, that the accused predator told her he didn’t want money. He wanted sex.
She complied, and they had at least one other similar encounter in January.
Unfortunately for Glenn, along with being an alleged predator, he’s also not too bright (allegedly). He later sent the victim a TikTok video of his truck, and she followed the link to his actual profile, where his age was listed as 24. Then she found him on another social media site and learned his real name.
Although the girl told friends and two separate teachers what had occurred, somehow it didn’t come to the attention of police until her father found the vape pens in her room. When asked how she acquired them, the 14-year-old confessed everything, prompting her father to contact local authorities. Photo and video evidence corroborating the girl’s story was taken from her phone by Chesterfield Police.
Glenn is currently being held in the Delaware County Jail without bond. He has been charged with promotion of human trafficking of a minor, a Level 3 felony; two counts of sexual misconduct with a minor, a Level 4 felony and two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, a misdemeanor.
He was also faces a previous charge for with sexual misconduct with a minor in October 2020. That case is still pending.
