STATESVILLE, N.C. -- Police have arrested a Statesville man on the charge of indecent exposure after he allegedly exposed himself in the children's department at Walmart last month.
Last week, the Statesville Police Department was flooded with tips identifying the suspect after media reports and posts on social media.
Investigators followed up on those leads and obtained a warrant for Jared Michael Ward, 24, of Statesville.
Police say Ward was spotted on June 15 standing behind display shelves in the children's clothing department in Walmart performing a lewd act while watching several young girls.
Ward was arrested last Thursday. His bond was set at $10,000.
