Kyler T. Chute, a sex offender on Megan’s List, was found with the teen in violation of his parole. He’s now behind bars in the Allegheny County Jail.

Detectives say Chute and the teen had been communicating through texts and Snapchat for about a month before they had “multiple forms of sexual type encounters.”

The teen had been reported missing by her family when she was found with Chute. Police coordinated with 911 to do emergency pings of the teen’s phone.

“We were able to set up a sting, if you will, or a takedown, and we apprehended them in the vehicle together without incident,” Allegheny Township Police Chief Duane Fisher said.

“It’s a criminal violation regardless of his probation, but the fact that we found prophylactics and other things in the car was a concern,” the chief added.

Police say Chute lied about his age, telling the girl he was 18 to 20 years old.
