On Tuesday, March 27, 2018, deputies from the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office were investigating a report of indecent exposure involving a white male driving a black Honda Civic.

The twelve victims, ages 15 to 17 were students of St. Charles High School and were on a school bus traveling in St. Mary’s County for a sports team event. One adult victim was also listed in court documents.

The girls said the white male, later identified as Glen Travis Strickler, 42, of Charlotte Hall, was driving alongside the bus with his penis in his hand, smiling and looking at the girls while masturbating.

A video recording was taken by one of the students with her cellphone, showed Strickler while he was masturbating.

Police say the video showed Strickler’s face and penis and showed the license plate of the Honda registered to him.

The police investigation revealed Strickler has several previous convictions of indecent exposure and is on supervised probation with Charles County for an indecent exposure conviction.

Police responded the residence of Strickler and asked him about the offense, Strickler initially he advised he didn’t have any remembrance of it. Police asked Strickler if he wanted to watch a video they had of him, he agreed and while watching the video said, “well yeah that’s me”. Strickler told police he remembered wearing the outfit in the video because he wore it while conducting a funeral that day. When asked why he was beside the bus in an area past the turn off to his house, Strickler told police he did not remember.

Strickler told police he knew he hadn’t “finished” (masturbating) because he didn’t have to clean up.

In Strickler’s initial District Court appearance questionnaire he lists his occupation as a pastor.

Glen Travis Strickler was charged with 13 counts of indecent exposure.

          Not sure where you ever heard this, but not true. Raised as and still Catholic. You are given an opportunity to contribute, but not forced in any way nor called out for not contributing, nor excommunicated. I should know; I don’t always contribute.

        There were plenty of peaceful Pagan religions that Catholicism co-opted to wipe out. Maybe you should pick up a book and see how all the Catholic holidays and rites are renamed Pagan holidays and rituals.

    • John Q Public on April 12, 2018 at 8:52 am

      They where girls not boys so most likely he is a non-denominational pastor. Everyone knows those pastors are the worst.

      • anonymous on April 13, 2018 at 6:09 pm

        You commented, “They where girls not boys,” then state, “he is non-denominational pastor…. those pastors are the worst,” contradicting you previous comment. I’d think molestation of 4-7yr olds boys would be way worse than exposing yourself to post adolescent teen females, whom will likely have seen and heard about gibbets, turkey necks and gravy, let alone they’ve already deduced men and their parts are gross – most already had to envision President Donald Trump and numerous sexual acts – seeing his encounters have been all over the news for a full 2 years.

    3) You are masturbating in public in broad daylight.
    4) You are on probation.
    5) You are SUPPOSED to be a pastor.

    I have said it before and I’ll say it again, Anyone in a position of power (such as a “”pastor,” minister, priest (etc), doctor, lawyer, law enforcement who does this kind of crap should be held to a higher standard. Their jail time should be doubled at least. No bail, no probation (did this pervert a lot of good), no time off for good behavior!

    Whats wrong wit dees white animals?, dey all should b lynched by the balls, and atomic bomb dropped on their sand fleas; to help him wit his itchy struggles. His parents must not care.

    It will take the white perverts like Donald Trump to fix perverts like this. They are 87% of the population and commit a vast majority of the perverted cases like rape, stalking, and child molesting cases. There’s tens of millions living like this in the country. This could be your brother and your childs Uncle. Perverts need love too anyone wanna let him move in wit dim.

    • Ms. Right on April 12, 2018 at 6:06 am

      Looks like “X Mioclam” is trying to tell us (in his own language, a dialect slightly south of Ebonics) he wants to apply all of the deriding comments typically placed on black criminals to this POS, suggesting that because he is white, less will be done to him by the justice system and society in general.

      I doubt you will see anybody ever saying “dintdo nuffins” in a case like this, regardless of color. If the whites are “perverts” as he says, why would they want to “fix this” anyway?

      No matter what color this guy is – he needs to be AT LEAST locked up. The fact that he has done similar acts before – and the judges are aware of it – speaks volumes of judicial incompetency.

      If he is licensed as a recognized pastor by the state, or ordained by any denomination, his ticket should have been pulled a very long time ago.

      This is one sick POS. He should not be breathing fresh air.

    • Lot Lizard on April 12, 2018 at 7:25 am

      You can stop pretending with the gangsta/thug/black, or whatever you want to label it, troll typing. Everyone knows “we” spell deez with a Z and not S like “deez nutz”,and dem is DEM not DIM. Being white has nothing to do with it. I’ve seen plenty of Hispanic and African American’s on our local news pages for the same thing or worse. When perverts need love, there is Great Mills road for that. Plenty of bait out there to drop a dub on…

    • X Mloclam is a putz on April 12, 2018 at 8:22 am

      I get that you are trying to be sarcastic and turn the tables, laughably, but you are actually making the point of “all the racist whities”. We are NOT defending him. We arent justifying his actions. We arent saying “we dont know this mans struggles”. There arent any “he’s a good dad”. We think he is disgusting and needs to be punished severely. You putz. Now do you get it? We dont defend the white guy just because hes white. Criminals are criminals and should be labeled as such, regardless of skin color

      • Lot Lizard on April 13, 2018 at 7:35 am

        Exactly! I tried to show he/she how stupid it look’s to read the “reproduction”. I don’t know what seems to be more ignorant, the point they were trying to make or the manner in which they typed the context.

    • Otis Scorpio discovered Google on April 12, 2018 at 10:46 am

      Ah, Backwards Malcolm X. Let’s assume that your 87% number is correct (doubtful, in light of the rest of the nonsense in your post, but let’s assume). FBI uniform crime reports for 2016 indicates that arrests for the the following offenses broke down as follows:

      Rape by whites: 67.6%
      Rape by blacks: 29.1%

      Sex offenses by whites: 71.6%
      Sex offenses by blacks: 24.7%

      The 2010 census gives the proportion of blacks in the population as 12.6%. So you shouldn’t fret. Whites may be arrested for “the majority” of sex crimes (but not 87% of sex crimes), but Blacks still punch above their weight in arrests in the rape and sex offenses categories (well above, if you make the not unreasonable assumption that most of these offenses are committed by males, i.e., by 6.3% of the population). Also, blacks were arrested for 52.6% of murders and non-negligent manslaughters in 2016, so you’ll have that distinction to fall back on.

      So now you get to explain how the statistics are racist.

And I’m sure all religions have perverts/kid touchers. It’s a sick person you blame , not a religion. Either way, you sound like an ignorant biggot, so I rest my case.

    Church appears to be Union Chapel United Methodist Church, in Joppa, MD. Appears to be an assistant pastor, although not clear if currently a pastor.
