Berthoud Police Officer Arrested on Child Abuse Charges
A Berthoud police officer was arrested Wednesday on four charges of child abuse and one of false imprisonment. Jeremy Yachik is free on a $1,500 cash bond.
A video recorded by Yachik’s ex-fiance, Ashley St. Roberts, shows Yachik abusing his 15-year-old daughter. He is accused of choking, force feeding, binding her hands with zip ties, locking her in rooms, handcuffing her and restricting her from eating.
St. Roberts contacted local media outlets, Loveland P.D. and town officials after she got
no response reporting the abuse to Berthoud Police.
Berthoud’s Police Chief Glenn Johnson, is on paid administrative leave right now while Loveland Police conduct a criminal investigation for allegedly covering up the video.
