A city officer arrested a Spring Creek man Wednesday morning at the Elko Area Regional Airport, where he works for the Transportation Security Administration, on a warrant charging six counts of lewdness with a child. The Elko County Sheriff’s Office was notified in July of possible sexual contact between David Ralph Anderson, 61, and a girl younger than 14. According to Elko Justice Court records, the victim told investigators that on seven to 10 occasions between 2010 and this year, Anderson allegedly taught the victim about various sexual acts and had sexual contact in the form of touching each other’s genitals.
Anderson, who is a TSA employee according to Elko County Jail records, is being held on $250,000 bail.
When you pay people to look at others naked in a “scanner,” and to “pat them down,” in a way that would be considered sexual assault were you in a bar, well, what do you expect?
