In January and February 2011, he sent messages to a 13 year old in Wisbech. Using the name ‘Party Time?’ he commented about pictures of her in her school uniform.
He was arrested in August, that year, and questioned about the messages.
But, at the start of 2012, he began sending messages to a 14 year old in Blackburn, Lancashire.
Chalmers had already been investigated after sending messages to a 13 year old in Ramsey, in 2009.
Officers also discovered indecent images on his computer.
“Thankfully the victims did not agree to meet up with him and alerted their parents or schoolteachers.
“We would always encourage parents to notify police if they suspect their child has been contacted by older people online.”
