RIALTO – City Administrator Henry Garcia said Friday he doesn’t expect the city to bring in outside attorneys to handle a $500,000 claim filed against the city by a woman who says that she had sex with Police Department officers while they were on duty.

“We’re not going to tag team this with special lawyers,” Garcia said.

Nancy Holtgreve, a drink server at the Spearmint Rhino strip club, alleges in the claim that police officers engaged in sex with female workers from the club, and the sex occurred frequently at the Rialto Police Benefit Association’s union building.

Holtgreve alleges she had sex with narcotics Officer Lamont Quarker in the department’s narcotics office.

She also claims to have a newborn son conceived by Officer James Dobbs.

Holtgreve alleges that Dobbs threatened and abused her after she demanded child support for their son. When the threats escalated, Holtgreve says she informed the department of their relationship and asked for protection from Dobbs.

The department is conducting an internal investigation, and four officers have been put on paid administrative leave.

Dobbs and Quarker have not returned phone messages through the department and union.
