Cop goes undercover as Amish woman to catch Pa. flasher

A male police officer spent much of December and January dressed as an Amish woman in hopes of scaring off a man suspected of exposing himself to children

PITTSBURGH — A male police officer spent much of December and January dressed as an Amish woman in hopes of scaring off a man suspected of exposing himself to Amish children in a western Pennsylvania township.

Pulaski Township Sgt. Chad Adams said Tuesday that police weren't able to charge the man because of a lack of evidence, but they believe he's the same person sentenced to house arrest in January for similar incidents in neighboring Mercer County. Still, Adams felt it was important to publicize his undercover gig on the Police Department's Facebook page, if only to deter the suspect or others in the future.

"Sometimes being a police officer means going undercover and doing what you have to do to catch the bad guy," Adams wrote in a caption for a photo showing him in a blue dress, black cloak and bonnet.
