In late January 2015, Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) investigators from the Sturgeon Bay Police Department conducted a search warrant at a residence on the east side of Sturgeon Bay. The search warrant stemmed from an ongoing investigation involving a cybertip. Once in the residence investigators seized multiple electronic devices. The electronic devices were then forensically analyzed by ICAC Investigators from the Sturgeon Bay Police Department. The investigation is ongoing and investigators hope to have formal charges sent over to the Door County District Attorneys office in the near future.

On Friday, February 13th the Sturgeon Bay Police Department took a report of a scam that occurred when a gentleman connected with a person who contacted him through match.com.
The person agreed to fly into Green Bay to spend time with him, and asked him for money for the ticket and some incidentals. The gentleman wired the money and when the time came, went to the airport; the female never got off the plane.
The woman said her father recently passed away and was in the construction business in England. Her father's will indicated she needed to get married in order for her to inherit the money; this was why she was on match.com.
The majority of the money sent to the woman was sent through Western Union and Money Gram. There have since been other reports of fraud happening through other dating websites.
