THEY BELIEVE THERE COULD BE MORE VICTIMS IN THIS COMMUNITY. LAST FALL, 40 YEAR OLD MICHAEL CHICK WAS DRIVING A SCHOOL BUS FOR GREENLAND CENTRAL ELEMENTARY WHEN COURT DOCUMENTS SAY HE STARTED PAYING SPECIAL ATTENTION TO AN EIGHT YEAR OLD BOY AND HIS SISTER ON THE ROUTE. HE ALLEGEDLY GAVE THEM GIFTS AND CANDY AND THEN ASKED THE CHILD’S MOTHER IF HE COULD ATTEND HIS LITTLE LEAGUE GAME. SHE DECLINED AND COMPLAINED TO THE SCHOOL DISTRICT. THE DRIVER’S ROUTE WAS CHANGED, BUT THE COURT DOCUMENTS SAY THE CONTACT WITH THE CHILD CONTINUED AND ESCALATED.
