A man is jailed in Lubbock, accused of threatening the children of real estate agents across 10 states.

McLennan County Sheriff Parnell McNamara says Andy Castillo sent vulgar text messages to realtors across Texas, including in Lubbock and Amarillo. Then, Castillo followed that up with photos of the agents' children and threats on their safety. 

Investigators tracked Castillo down to an apartment in Lubbock and raided it, with the assist of state troopers. They found evidence of similar stalking and harassment in other states.

Sheriff McNamara described the search for Castillo as frantic.

"Some of these ladies are single moms and they were very frightened about this guy," McNamara said. "They didn't know where he was, what his ultimate goal was. But he's just a nasty rat, and just a pervert in the truest sense of the word. Just a weird sicko."

Castillo is charged with criminal solicitation and aggravated sexual assault of a child. If convicted, he faces up to life in prison with the possibility for parole.

McNamara says there are victims in the Lubbock area. If you have received similar messages threatening you or your children, trying to extort sex, call Lubbock Police.
