Cops dress as Amish to target flasher

PULASKI, Pa. (AP) - April 15, 2014

Pulaski Township Sgt. Chad Adams says police weren't able to charge the man for a lack of concrete evidence, but believe he's the same person sentenced to house arrest in January for similar incidents in neighboring Mercer County.

Adams says he got help from a female officer in Wampum. The Amish who live in Lawrence County, along the Ohio border, don't want their children to testify in court and agreed to lend the police women's bonnets, aprons and dresses to catch or scare away the suspect.

Adams recently revealed the investigation now that the incidents have stopped.
