On September 12, 2016, Dallas officers received a report from the Dallas School District that a male teacher employed by the District was alleged to have been involved in an inappropriate relationship with a female student. A subsequent investigation led by Detective Darren Buchholz resulted in the arrest of the male teacher. 

Buchholz' investigation revealed evidence to support allegations that Kirk David Myrold--a Spanish teacher and soccer coach for the Dallas High School--had been involved in an inappropriate relationship with a 17 year old female student of the high school. As the result of the investigation by Buchholz, Myrold was arrested later that afternoon and lodged at the Polk County Jail, charged with one count each of Luring a Minor (Class C-Felony) and Sexual Abuse in the Second Degree (Class C-Felony) . Bail was set at $30,000.00 

This investigation is continuing. Anyone with information regarding this, or a related incident, is encouraged to contact Detective Buchholz at 503-831-3516.
