PORTLAND -- An Oregon State Police detective resigned after he was charged with patronizing a prostitute while he was on duty Aug. 6, officials said.
A woman who runs a nearby daycare reported seeing a man and woman having sex in some bushes off Southeast Johnson Creek Boulevard, according to the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies responded to the scene and discovered the man involved was 50-year-old detective Richard Narvaez, according to Lt. Gregg Hastings of the Oregon State Police.
Navaraez was on duty at the time but was not in uniform. The woman Navaraez was with, 32-year-old Tiffany Smith, was also arrested.
Narvaez was placed on unpaid leave after the charges were filed. He resigned Sept. 3, effective Aug. 31, Hastings said.
