A Bucks County man who pleaded guilty to cyber stalking a teen girl was arrested again after he allegedly continued to harass her on social media and tried to meet with her at Starbucks.
Shane Holderer, 55, of Pipersville, Pennsylvania, was arrested Thursday and charged with harassment.
Holderer was convicted of stalking and harassing in a sexual manner a 13-year-old girl on social media between 2012 and 2013 and was sentenced to five years of probation with conditions that included no longer contacting her.

On September 25, 2016, the same girl reported to police that she was once again being stalked and harassed on Twitter. The teen said she noticed three days earlier that a user she did not recognize had retweeted one of her tweets. The girl checked the account and discovered it contained several thousand tweets about her, according to investigators. She also said several of the tweets were sexual in nature and many mentioned explicit sexual acts that the user wanted to do with her.
Investigators say they determined Holderer was the man behind the account based on the fact that many of the tweets were similar to the ones he made about the same girl back in 2012 and 2013 as well as the fact that the tweets referenced his personal life and family members. Officials also say Holderer had an Instagram account that mentioned the girl, her younger sister and some of her friends. Many of the posts on his Instagram were sexual as well, according to investigators. Investigators also believe Holderer created the account in October, 2013, shortly after he was charged in the initial cyber stalking case.
Officials say Holderer made one Instagram post that included the cropped and zoomed in photo of the girl’s buttocks with the caption, “God d*** that’s a nice a**…Admittedly I use the whole package for workout motivation.”
After determining Holderer was behind both the Twitter and Instagram accounts, a police officer took over the girl’s Twitter account and assumed her identity. Investigators say the officer and Holderer messaged each other back and forth for several days until they set up a meeting at the Starbucks Cafe on North Main Street in Doylestown. On Thursday around 6:45 p.m., Holderer arrived at the Starbucks where he was met by the officer. Holderer allegedly admitted to using his Twitter and Instagram accounts for “things he shouldn’t be using them for.” He was then arrested and taken into custody.
Holderer’s bail was set at $250,000. He’s currently in jail awaiting his next hearing.
