According to authorities, Pelletier was posting the videos on YouTube under the name ‘Buddynuggets78.’

Police say they were able to the names and videos as a starting point to track down the home Pelletier and his wife had rented.

“we were able to research it,” said Lt. Laz Chavez.”Utilize some electronic equipment that we have, as well as just old school surveillance and help from the community to identify the residents.”

Chavez called posting the videos, “Not very smart,” adding “In my opinion, the most arrogant of all of them that I have seen.’
