In April 2021, the SFPD Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) unit received a report from a female victim who was extorted for nude images, nude videos, and sexually explicit video calls by user “Jack Lucas” on a social media platform. SFPD ICAC investigators began an investigation into the suspect. As a result of the investigation, the ICAC Unit identified the suspect as Aidan Worley, a 22- year-old resident of Livermore, CA.
On August 19, 2022, SFPD investigators served a search warrant on the 400 block of Ann Court in Livermore, CA. During the search warrant service, Worley was taken into custody without further incident. Investigators seized multiple electronic devices as evidence.
