“Just watch,” one of the text messages allegedly read.

Guam – A man already behind bars is being accused of advanced stalking.

According to court documents, Gregory Lathiel Reese violated a protective order, calling and sending text messages to the victim, stating “Just watch.” And he did this all while incarcerated at the Department of Corrections.

The report states that the victim reported to police that Reese had contacted her by phone and sent her text messages her from June 22 through June 27. Despite blocking the phone number that Reese had been using, she continued to get text messages from him.

The victim further reported that Reese had harassed her and that she was in fear because Reese had the ability to call people outside the prison and have them do things like check her residence and even follow her.

This is not the first time Reese has allegedly terrorized the victim from prison. She states that she also filed a complaint last year.

A search of Reese’s cell was conducted but no cell phone was found. It wasn’t until a further search was conducted in the area of Reese’s prison cell that a cell phone was located. Police say it was concealed within the shower drainage. Officers were able to retrieve records of multiple “auto rejected calls and text messages from the confiscated phone to the victim’s phone number.” One message said “Stop calling me or I will report you.” However, the defendant continued to contact the victim on two separate occasions, police say.

Reese has been charged with advanced stalking, family violence, violation of court order and harassment.
