TRUCKEE, Calif. (AP) - The California Highway Patrol has arrested one of its own on suspicion of engaging in sexual acts with a minor.
Truckee CHP officer Robert Holland was arrested at his Loyalton home Tuesday afternoon after other officers searched his home. They also seized his phone and computer.
CHP Commander Timothy Malone says the 46-year-old Holland resigned the next day after 15 years on the force.
The arrest followed allegations brought to the agency's attention. While the CHP typically doesn't investigate sex crimes, Malone says the Sierra County Sheriff asked his division to lead the investigation.
Police did not release the minor's age or gender. Malone says the alleged sexual acts happened while the officer was off-duty.
Holland is being held in Nevada County Jail on $500,000 bail.
