Suspect in Robyn Gardner Disappearance Arrested for Indecent Exposure

Giordano, 51, and a woman identified as Carol Bock, 45, of Tennessee were arrested for investigation of indecent exposure after they were discovered by Annapolis police responding to a call of possible sexual activity in a car in a parking garage last Friday evening.
When officers shined a light through an SUV window, the pair were seen lying naked on a mattress in the rear cargo area with a blanket hanging "in what appeared to be an attempt to conceal their activity,” say charging documents reported by the Washington Times.
Giordano had been a suspect in the disappearance of traveling partner Gardner in Aruba in August 2011. He claimed she never returned from a snorkeling trip they took together.
Authorities questioned his story and kept him in jail until a judge ordered him released last November. No charges have been filed in that case.
The indecent exposure charge carries a $1,000 fine or up to three years in jail. A lawyer for Giordano was not immediately available for comment.
