PULASKI TOWNSHIP, Pa. - A police officer told Channel 11’s Amy Marcinkiewicz that he went undercover dressed as an Amish woman in hopes of scaring off a man suspected of exposing himself to Amish children.
Pulaski Township Sgt. Chad Adams spent much of December and January in Amish attire.
The group agreed to lend police women's bonnets, aprons and dresses to catch or scare away the suspect because they don't want their children to testify in court.
“They gave me their own clothing to wear to be authentic,” said Adams.
A female officer dressed as an Amish woman also worked with Adams.
“I didn’t think it was odd because I was doing it to protect the children of our community,” said Adams.
Adams said police haven't been able to charge the man because of a lack of evidence, but believe he is the same person who was sentenced to house arrest in January for similar incidents in another county.
Adams revealed the investigation because the incidents have stopped.
