Aruba Suspect Charged with Indecent Exposure in Annapolis Garage

Gary Giordano, a Gaithersburg resident, was found naked with a woman inside a vehicle.


A man suspected in the disappearance of a woman in Aruba was arrested for indecent exposure in Annapolis last week.

At around 6 p.m. Friday, two bike patrol officers responded to a report of sexual activity in a vehicle at the Noah Hillman garage, police said.

Upon approaching a black Cadillac Escalade, the officers discovered Gary Giordano, 51, of Gaithersburg and Carol Bock of Tennessee on top of a mattress inside the vehicle, according to a police report.

One officer saw Bock lying on her left side with her left breast exposed and the other officer observed Giordano's genitals through the window as he was adjusting a towel around his midsection, the report states. The officers observed that he was completely nude when they asked him to get dressed.

The Escalade is registered to Giordano's Gaithersburg address in the 12400 block of Pueblo Road.

Both Giordano and Bock were arrested on site and charged with one count of indecent exposure each, police said.

"While we recognize that Mr. Giordano enjoys an infamous reputation, the Annapolis arrest was simply a matter of effective police work in response to citizen complaints," said Michael Pristoop, Annapolis police chief, in an email. "Officers took quick and appropriate action under the circumstances. Indecent exposure and other offensive conduct are intolerable, and the Annapolis Police Department will enforce the law."

Giordano was investigated in the disappearance of Maryland woman Robyn Gardner in Aruba last August, according to AOL Travel. He was her traveling companion.

He was in a PUBLIC PARKING GARAGE. Re-Read the story. Really?

I have never had sex in a car. Doesn't make me a hypocrite. I have never had sex in a public place where I could get caught, either. Doesn't make me a backstabber. Some of us just have different standards I suppose. You use the monicker of Bill Clinton and that pretty much tells me where your personal moral compass points.

Too much Fifty Shades of Grey reading going on out there.

As with most things, some should be done in public and others in private. Last time I checked there are certain resorts where you can indulge in voyeuristic sex if you so choose and it's legal.

Why excuse a man for bad behavior when it is probably a fact that he killed another woman? Eventually that will be known for certain too. I wouldn't want to see his junk, yikes.....or hers for that matter. It would have been much simpler if they had gone to a motel or something similar...

@Katie, never in public? How about popcorn container theater peter at the movies?
JM May 23, 2012 at 03:34 PM
He knows what happened to that girl!!!
Katie May 23, 2012 at 03:37 PM
@MoFoMan No, not in a movie theater or with the butler in the dining room with a knife, either. Sex in public never held any interest for me. When it comes to sex, I need privacy and a lot of time. I please my man and a quickie in the back seat of an SUV, even with a mattress, doesn't work. I've never had a man complain, either. Quite the opposite.

I agree with you above, there are a lot of pretty girls in Tn and Ky also and people are always calling them backwoods sluts or something else that is not ok

I guess it depends on if your being indecent..meaning in the middle of a neighborhood and being loud about it...if people outside the vehicle can hear them enough to know what they are doing then that is totally indecent. If you must do it in your car then have the common decency and respect for others to go and find a more private area!! Geeesh!!

Really kind of stupid to arrest anybody who is having sex in a car that has tinted windows...I'm sure it was someone who knew him and where he was that called! If your going to arrest people for indecent exposure how about those who let their pants hang below their a#$? Let's see how far you get with that!
jackie s May 23, 2012 at 03:42 PM
since when is having sex in a car with tinted windows in your own garage indescent exposure? it's like peering into your windows

Erik has Google Doodle on the brain. Today is Bob Moog's 78th Bday :))

@jackie - they weren't in their own garage. they were in the city's public garage where most of the city employees park. its also in downtown Annapolis so was probably packed on a Friday evening.
KELLY CARSON May 23, 2012 at 04:14 PM
Jackie - try reading the article - they were in public parking garage !
Mack May 23, 2012 at 04:56 PM
Like we never done it on the back seat of our cars,,feels so good
doug barr May 23, 2012 at 05:09 PM
excuse me, but exactly WHY is this embarrasing tidbit supposed to be newsworthy? It has absolutely nothing to do with anything. The dude had sex, is that supposed to prove he is guilty of the other crime somehow? Grow up
Katie May 23, 2012 at 05:59 PM
Her behavior classifies her as a backwoods mutt. What person of quality meets a man 4 states away and has sex with him in public in an Annapolis parking garage in an SUV? Wow, I'm impressed with her pedigree and her husband's house - NOT. I would be willing to bet there are men in Tennessee who would have had sex with her. Her stupid choice is likely going to cost her big time. No, she has no sense or no class.

Obviously the tint was not dark enough. What an idiot. I admit I have don it in a Suburban, the windows were completely blacked out. Screens for that purpose are readily available and he would have been fine. You can rock a van all day long in public and as long as no one can see in, all's well.
ree May 23, 2012 at 07:00 PM
He should have had a van or minivan. The police could not have bothered them in that case. It was only because the windows were obviously NOT tinted enough. Pretty gross the cop saw his genitalia... Now he will have to describe it in court, lol.
ree May 23, 2012 at 07:04 PM
Katie, if you want to try it out, I have a private garage at my house we can shut the door and no one will know. Take as long as you want no quickie. It would be fun. Let me know
ree May 23, 2012 at 07:29 PM
Did your best friend and her fiance do it in a public garage for all to see?
ree May 23, 2012 at 07:35 PM
@ Katie, although she gave a TN address she might be living in Gaithersburg or Annapolis or anywhere. People travel for work and other reasons and keep their official address. She's pretty ugly but so is the killer-dude she was bonking. They should have done it in a van or put shades on the windows.

its text guber, its suppose to be with or without errors, big deal. Its not a term paper that you are going to graded on. If I made a mistake, up yours. Now back to the discussion

Evidently the tint was not dark enough.

madenusa: The Police were responding to a complaint, and did not do anything wrong. However, I would not have made this arrest, as I fell that there was an effort to conceal the activity from the general public view.
jnrentz1 May 24, 2012 at 09:45 PM
I do not think this is a good indecent exposure case. They were in the back of an SUV They were in a parking garage. As concerns Ms. Bock, the police only saw her breast. A breast is not genitals, and breast exposure may not be encompassed by Maryland's Indecent Exposure Law. I would not have made this arrest.
