A former security guard at an Antioch high school is facing charges for lewd acts with a minor. Authorities believe he may have been in contact with more.
Christopher George Miller, 29, had only been employed at the school for seven days when a parent reported his actions.
The parent told Deer Valley High School administrators that Miller was sending “inappropriate texts” to her student about marijuana use. The Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office said the text messages were also “sexually suggestive.”
Miller was terminated the same day and an investigation against him began on June 2022.
Around three weeks ago, the case was taken over by the Contra Costa County Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC). The team wanted to see if Miller would offer marijuana to a minor and meet her for sex.
According to the DA’s office, a detective posed as a 13-year-old girl on a chat app that Miller used and began chatting with him. During the exchange of texts, Miller offered to sell marijuana, and later on, his chats became more sexual.
Miller made plans to meet the fake teen for sex at a park in Martinez on March 16. The sheriff’s office, the DA’s office, and officers with the Concord, Danville, and Pittsburg police departments arrived to arrest Miller.
Miller is now facing additional charges of marijuana possession with the intent to sell to a minor and contacting and arranging to engage in lewd acts with a minor.
He was booked into the Martinez Detention Facility and arraigned on seven felony charges on March 21. Martinez will be back in court on April 3 for a preliminary hearing.
ICAC Senior Inspector Darryl Holcombe states that Miller could have been in contact with more victims. At this time, the inspector is asking the public to email him if they have information related to this case at DHolcombe@contracostada.org.
