Level III sex offender lives in Langley

The Island County Sheriff’s Office notified the public this week that a Level III sex offender will be living in Langley.

Chase E. Collins, 24, will be living on Forest Lane. His victims have been teenage girls, according to the sheriff’s office.

A Level II sex offender is considered to be a high risk to reoffend. The risk level is determined by a matrix that takes into account his criminal history and other factors, according to Sheriff Rick Felici.

On Sept. 13, Collins was convicted of two counts of communicating with a minor in King County. He met a 15-year-old girl through an internet app that allows people to post anonymously. He made arrangements to meet her and sexually assaulted her even after she told him her age. They met three days later and he again sexually assaulted her, according to the sheriff’s office.

Collins made regional news a couple years ago for exposing himself to girls and women in Mukilteo. His would drive up to a female who was walking on the street, ask for directions and then expose himself and masturbate. He was convicted of doing this to four people, ages 15, 17, 18 and 21.

On Feb 1, 2017, Collins was found guilty of four counts of indecent exposure, with one count having a tag of “with sexual motivation” in Snohomish County, according to the sex offender database.

Collins is required to register with the sheriff’s office in the county of his residence for 10 years, or until relieved by the courts of the duty to do so. He s under Department of Corrections supervision but is not wanted by law enforcement.
