El Dorado County—El Dorado County detectives arrested Glenn O’Rourke of Placerville on April 28, 2014 in a sexual predator case.
On Monday April 14, 2014, a 15-year-old boy reported to the Sheriff’s Office that he had received sexually suggestive and descriptive text messages from an unknown 26-year-old male, who identified himself as “Glenn Coco.” The text messages described the man’s sexual desires for the boy and also included homemade pornographic videos of himself performing sexual acts and numerous suggestive photographs. O’Rourke had initiated casual conversations with the boy several months earlier in an attempt to groom the boy into becoming his partner for sexual pleasure.
El Dorado County detectives immediately began investigating the case against this sexual predator, who was targeting an unsuspecting youth in the community. An arrest warrant was requested for O’Rourke through the District Attorney’s Office. With the assistance of the 15-year-old boy, detectives contacted O’Rourke using the boy’s cellular telephone and impersonated the boy. A meeting date and location was quickly established but O’Rourke never made it to the meeting location. Detectives were in place and arrested O’Rourke without incident. He was later booked into the county jail and his bail is $250,000.
Detectives do not believe the boy in this case is O’Rourke’s only victim. Anyone with information regarding O’Rourke (aka Coco) is asked to call Detective Rich Horn at (530) 642-4715.
