Undercover OPD officer arrests a man for exposing himself in a local park.
On today's date, 6/12/13, members of the Special Deployment Unit (SDU) were in Scott Springs Park, 2300 SW 24th Ave., in an undercover capacity. While there, one of the officers observed a white male subject, later identified as Larry Joe Dambach, DOB 7/3/45, with his pants down in an area where the various trails intersect. Dambach pulled up his pants and suggested they go sit at a picnic table. Upon sitting down, Dambach pulled out a pipe to smoke marijuana - later field tested positive. He then asked the undercover officer why he was there. When the answer was "oral sex", Dambach requested that the undercover officer meet him on one of the trails, over a hill. When the officer followed, he found Dambach exposing himself and confirming he wanted oral sex performed on him.

At that point, the officer identified himself as a law enforcement officer and placed Dambach under arrest. Dambach declined to speak with the officer any further. The officer noted that two vans of mentally handicapped persons were present in the park at the time of this incident.

Dambach was transported to the Marion County Jail an charged with one count of Exposure of Sexual Organs and one count of Possession of Marijuana.
