Bee Branch man arrested for Computer Child Porn & Internet Stalking of a Child
Dickie Chance


On July 19, 2011, Dickie Ray Chance, age 58, of Bee Branch, Arkansas, was arrested for Computer Child Pornography (Class B Felony) and Internet Stalking of a Child (Class A Felony). The arrest is the result of an ongoing online investigation. Chance had made contact and had been engaging in sexually explicit chats on the internet with who he believed was a 14 year old girl, which in fact was an undercover investigator from the Marion County Sheriff's Department.

Chance had arranged a meeting with the "girl" at a motel in nearby Harrison, Arkansas. Chance was waiting outside the motel at a predetermined time for the "girl" when officers arrived and quickly arrested him without incident. Chance's bond was set at $50,000.00 and is currently awaiting his first appearance before the Marion County Circuit Court. Assisting in the arrest was the Harrison Police Department.
