El Dorado County Sheriff's Office in California arrested a man involved in a sexual predator case. However, deputies are also searching for possible victims of this sex abuse.

On Monday, April 14th, a 15-year-old boy reported to the Sheriff's Office that he recieved sexually suggestive text messages from a 26-year-old male, who went by the name "Glenn Coco".

Deputies say the text messages described the man's sexual desires for the boy, along with homemade pornographic videos and photographs. “Glenn Coco” began casual conversation 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 the sexual predator. The man was later identified as Glenn O’Rourke from Placerville, California.

An arrest warrant was requested for O’Rourke through the District Attorney’s Office. With the assistance of the victim, detectives contacted O’Rourke by impersonating the teen and communicating with him through the teen's cell phone. A meeting date and location was quickly established, but O’Rourke never made it to meeting location.

Deputies say detectives were in place and arrested O’Rourke without incident. He was later booked into the county jail and his bail is $250,000.00.

Officials believe the teen is not O'Rourke's only victim. Anyone with information regarding O’Rourke is asked to call Detective Rich Horn at 530-642-4715.
