LYNDEN, Wash. – New information has been released on the former Lynden Police officer who investigators say had child porn on his work cell phone.

Court documents say Donald Glunt told a sergeant who was investigating his excessive texting that he had been communicating with a female in Texas, describing it as “a lapse in judgment.”

Glunt wanted to delete something from the phone before the sergeant took it, but the sergeant wouldn’t let him.

The 16-year-old girl in Texas says Glunt told her that he was in trouble and that she should say she was 19 if asked.

That may explain why he told investigators that he thought he was talking to a 19-year-old.

Glunt told detectives he had several thousand images of sexually exploited children on his laptop for a presentation.

Charging papers say he admitted to looking at child modeling sites, and that he communicated with the Texas teen on his personal and work laptops, his work desktop and his personal and work cell phones.
