Federal officials are searching for more potential victims of a Texas man who recently pled guilty to cyberstalking women for almost three years in Colorado, Texas and Arizona.

Hugo Iram Cardona Jr., 21, used a scheme involving two-factor authentication — an electronic authentication method — to hack into the Snapchat accounts of at least 15 young women, then steal their intimate photos and videos, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Western District of Texas reports.

The Odessa man reached out to his victims on social media platforms like Instagram and “demanded that they ‘apologize,’ or he would publicly release the content,” according to the federal government office. He also pressured most of the young women into video chatting with him “while engaging in sexually explicit conduct.”
