Man Arrested for Indecent Exposure

Allegedly Committed Two Lewd Acts at Drive-Thru

Thirty-year-old Ivan Flores was arrested on April 15 in Orcutt by Sheriff’s Department deputies following two separate charges of indecent exposure while in the drive-thru line at Orcutt Burgers on Bradley Road. Flores was reportedly in the drive-thru line at approximately 7:30 p.m. when a teenage employee of the restaurant noticed he was exposing his genitals while in his vehicle at the window.

Orcutt Burgers employees reported a similar incident earlier last month, on March 13, when a man fitting the same description exposed himself to another employee. During the most recent incident, however, the staff was able to record his vehicle make and license plate number before he drove off. They called the Sheriff’s Department, which was then able to apprehend Flores at his home on the 3000 block of Orcutt Road and interview him about the incident.

Detectives brought on to investigate the case were able to arrest Flores on April 15. He was booked into the Santa Barbara County Jail on two acts of indecent exposure. Flores later made bail, but detectives from the Santa Maria Police Department urge anyone who witnesses any similar incidents involving Flores to contact them immediately.
