FELTON, Del. - A man walked into a Kent County convenience store and revealed more to a female cashier than she expected or wanted.
Delaware State Police say 60-year old Garland Citizen walked into the Felton Shore Stop along South Dupont Highway, purchased a newspaper and a cup of coffee, took a seat, and a short time later exposed himself.
Troopers say Citizen ran away, but not before surveillance cameras caught him in the act. It took one month for investigators to track him down.
Neighbors like Virginia Melvin say she couldn't believe what happened.
"I think it's terrible," said Melvin.
Melvin said Citizen never gave her reason prior to the incident to be concerned.
"He's always treated me all right, when he stops by once in awhile. He come over one day and killed a snake for us, my daughter and I," said Melvin.
Thanks to tips from the public, Citizen was arrested Tuesday night at his home along Sandalwood Road.
"In all the years I've known him, I've waited on him as a customer at the convenience store across the street and he's always been very polite," said Sarah Nelson of Felton.
According to investigators he was not acting citizen-like while inside the Felton Shore Stop.
Citizen was charged with disorderly conduct and indecent exposure. He is being held at the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in Smyrna on a $2,000 secured bond.
