Two “fully nude” women reported at Woods Cove

On Friday, April 12, at 12:22 p.m., LBPD officers were dispatched to Woods Cove in reference to a public nudity complaint. 

“The suspects were described as two fully nude females in their twenties,” LBPD Spokesperson PIO Sgt Jim Cota said. “The reporting party was offended by the females due to her minor children being present at the beach.” 

According to police records, the caller reported “two females exposing their breasts to kids on the beach. The RP told them to stop and they became verbally abusive and using profanity at the RP and the kids on the sand.”

One alleged “nudie” had very short black hair and the second suspect sans swimsuit was described as having a brown ponytail. A brown dog was reportedly with them wearing full fur.

The caller requested contact with an LBPD officer. A few minutes later, the pair reportedly packed up their items and was later spotted by the RP fully clothed sitting in a black Ford truck.

According to police records, the caller said, “They were completely nude until they put their clothes on.”

“The females left the area prior to officers arriving,” Sgt Cota said. “A report was taken.”
