Roughly a week after EDP445 was caught on video attempting to meet with a 13-year-old girl, YouTube has elected to ban the content creator from its platform. The man behind exposing EDP445, Chet Goldstein, also had his channel removed from YouTube. It’s not immediately clear what was behind Goldstein’s banishment.

The Kern County Sheriff’s Office confirmed it’s investigating the allegations and video of YouTube personality EDP445 getting confronted for allegedly trying to meet up with a 13-year-old girl.

While civilian sting operations aren’t illegal, like the one conducted against EDP445, Bakersfield Police warned against the possible ramifications. Sgt. Robert Pair claimed similar sting operations risk the safety of civilians and could hurt law enforcement’s investigation.

The Predator Poachers or CC Unit (Creep Catching), the group that confronted the Youtuber, have posted dozens of videos from around the country. Usually, the group poses as minors on social media in an attempt to catch child sexual predators in the act.

The group plans to continue their sting operations and claimed they’ve never encountered a scenario where a police investigation was ruined due to their work.

The full video of popular YouTuber EDP445 getting confronted for allegedly trying to meet up with a 13-year-old girl has been released after a teaser clip went viral earlier this week.

The sting operation occurred in Bakersfield, California, when a group called the Predator Poachers approached the 30-year-old with multiple screenshots and messages he exchanged with someone he thought was an underage girl. One of the group membe8rs presented EDP445, whose real name is Bryant Moreland, with a stack of paper containing 84 messages before asking the YouTuber’s intentions around the 6:20 mark.

“I was actually coming out here to pick up a cupcake and then go back home,” Moreland responded. “There was nothing that was gonna be sexual involved because I’m not like that — well, obviously the text messages and stuff like that, you know what I mean? Yeah, that was all that was gonna happen.”

When pressed further on his reasons for messaging a 13-year-old and then attempting to meet up with her, Moreland claimed he was simply lonely.

“She messaged me and I’m not gonna lie to you man, sometimes a person feels lonely and stuff and they want the interaction, you know what I mean? And that’s pretty much what happened,” he claimed.

Throughout the rest of the clip, the group questioned Moreland’s attraction to underage girls. Around 48 minutes into the clip, Moreland attempted to prevent the group from calling the police by claiming he was going to get help.

“You’re not gonna get help. You had plenty of chances to get help,” responded one of the Predator Poachers. “You’ve been exposed for this six different times. Here you are not learning your lesson. This is not okay.”

The video ended with Moreland leaving to his vehicle, which was parked at a nearby Rite Aid, as the group stayed on the phone with 911.

YouTuber EDP445, known as “crazy Eagles guy” in various memes, was caught allegedly trying to meet up with a 13-year-old girl.

Independent sexual predator hunters known as the Predator Poachers made several Instagram posts exposing the YouTube personality after posing as a 13-year-old girl. On their Instagram account (@predatorpoachersv6), the group posted explicit screenshots of EDP445’s alleged conversation as well as video footage of them confronting him.

“You did double text here, correct? Knowing she was 13?” they asked him, to which he replied, “Correct.”

The group then asked, “So you initiated a conversation with a 13-year-old knowing she was 13,” to which the 30-year-old said, “Correct.”

EDP445, real name Bryant Turman Emerson Moreland, has over 2 million YouTube subscribers and has found himself responding to accusations of inappropriate behavior with minors before. In October 2020, he was catfished by someone posing as a 17-year-old girl. He was also accused of having inappropriate conversations with an underage girl in July 2020.

As of now, Moreland has not been charged with any crime.
