The FBI is looking for the public’s help to identify a man they say is behind an online gaming account used by a man with a criminal history, according to a report.
The New York Post reported that agents raided a New Jersey home and seized computers and other equipment Tuesday that were connected to the man.
The man, identified by The Post as 32-year-old Christopher R. Smith, is accused of threatening to kill a man in the New Jersey town of Brunswick in November, according the report.
Authorities say the suspect was also allegedly trying to get the public to play GTA Online for $1,000.
He also allegedly made threats against a former girlfriend.
The FBI said in a statement that Smith is a registered sex offender and has been banned from online gaming since November.
He is also prohibited from using a computer to create or post any threatening, abusive, or threatening communication.
Smith is also facing a charge of cyberstalking and a count of criminal mischief.
The Post said he is being held in New Jersey.
