Description: Davenport, IA - The United States of America charged Chad Eric Mink with multiple acts of felonious behavior.

Chad Eric Mink, age 45, from Rock Island, Illinois, was sentenced to a total sentence of 600 months in prison after being convicted of 15 counts alleging various crimes including stalking, interstate domestic violence, receipt and possession of unregistered destructive devices, malicious use of explosive materials, identity theft, using a destructive device during a crime of violence, interstate transportation of a stolen vehicle, and tampering with a witness and evidence.

A jury found Mink guilty of the 15 offenses on June 24, 2019. At trial, the Government presented more than 70 witnesses, including several forensic experts, who testified about Mink’s use of a stolen truck to ram a vehicle occupied by a former intimate partner and her boyfriend; possession of multiple pipe bombs; planting a pipe bomb near his former intimate partner’s room at the Quad City Inn in Davenport; and attempts to influence a witness to destroy evidence and to fabricate evidence.

“This case demonstrates once again the effectiveness of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies combining their expertise and investigative talents to remove a very dangerous person from our community,” stated Mario Vidoli, Special Agent in Charge, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Kansas City Division.

“Chad Mink is a violent, dangerous stalker who, for years, subjected a good woman to his own personal reign of terror,” said United States Attorney Marc Krickbaum. “Mink deserves every day he will spend in federal prison. I commend the prosecution team, including Assistant United States Attorneys Cliff Cronk, Amy Jennings, Will Ripley, Victim-Witness Coordinator Christina Busse, and especially ATF Special Agent Jason Pessman, whose tireless work on this case upheld the highest standards of law enforcement.”

The lead investigative agency was the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The following agencies assisted in the investigation: the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Federal Bureau of Prisons, United States Marshals Service, Rock Island (County) Sheriff’s Office, Davenport Police Department, Milan (Illinois) Police Department, Rock Island Police Department, Muscatine County Jail, and the Illinois State Police Crime Laboratory. The case was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
