A Los Angeles Police Department officer who resides in Huntington Beach has been arrested for exposing himself near the Bolsa Chica wetlands, according to cops in Surf City. Police received several calls about a man exposing himself in the wetlands at the dead end of Bolsa Chica Street, which led detectives to stake out the area, observe a fellow exposing himself on an open path and place him under arrest last Thursday morning, Oct. 23, according to Huntington Beach Police Lt. Mitch O’Brien.
The suspect was later identified as 33-year-old Ryan Eric Galiher, who works out of the Van Nuys station but was, obviously, off duty at the time he was allegedly getting his jollies.
He was placed on administrative leave after his arrest on a suspected lewd act in public, O’Brien told City News Service.
Now police are seeking more people who may have witnessed any, erm, Galiher shows as that could increase the criminal counts against him. Call police at 714.375.5066 or leave an anonymous tip with Orange County Crime Stoppers at 855.TIP.OCCS.
