BEAVER, Pa. - A Lawrence County man is facing several charges after police said he exposed himself inside a local public library.

According to police, officers were dispatched to the Beaver Area Memorial Library Saturday afternoon when 47-year-old Preston Sager walked into the library.

Authorities said surveillance video showed Sager had previously exposed himself inside the library, so the librarian alerted police when he returned.

Investigators said Sager tried to run from police when officers approached him.

While attempting to flee, police said Sager dropped a bag. Inside, officers found a laptop, a webcam and other inappropriate items.

According to the police report, police found several videos of Sager placing hidden cameras under tables in the library on the laptop.

Sager is charged with open lewdness, resisting arrest and indecent exposure, police said. He faces a preliminary hearing Sept. 9.
