Rocklin police have arrested a Whitney High School teacher for allegedly texting a teen for sex or naked pictures.

Richard Eldredge, 41, of Sacramento, was arrested on suspicion of unlawful contact with a minor for unlawful sexual purposes. Eldredge, a theater arts teacher, has been placed on administrative leave by the Rocklin Unified School District.

The 17-year-old female victim told officers that Eldredge more than once texted her for sex or naked photos, according to a police press release.

The revelations came to police from someone who is mandated to report such incidents. The reporting party is not associated with the high school.

Rocklin police do not know of any other victims.
