            CONCORD –Michael Chick, 39, of Eliot, ME, was indicted by a federal grand jury on one count of cyberstalking, United States Attorney Jane E. Young announced today.

            Chick was arrested on a criminal complaint on August 5, 2022, following the execution of a search warrant at his residence.  He is being detained pending trial.
