The Irvine Police Department reported on their Facebook page today that they arrested a Santa Ana man, Rogelio Gallardo Ramirez, age 45, at the Irvine Spectrum Center after an independent activist group lured him there on the pretense that he was going to meet with a minor female.

The group live-streamed their meeting with Ramirez and part of the police officer contact with him.

The Irvine Police Department stated that members of the group became confrontational and argumentative with the police officers. Based on a review of the officers’ body-worn camera footage the Department determined that officers acted professionally and acted with policy.

Ramirez was arrested and booked on multiple charges related to the online interaction with the group members who were pretending to be a minor female.

Ramirez has no connection to the Irvine Spectrum Center or the City of Irvine.

Facebook members noted that the group in question is called CC Unit and is found on Instagram.
