PICKENS COUNTY—Police have apprehended a Pickens man after several instances of alleged indecent exposure in the past few months.
The arrest stemmed from a Pickens County Sheriff’s Office investigation that began in July.
Douglas Dean Evans, 41, of 215 McDaniel Avenue Pickens was eventually apprehended on Thursday, Nov. 8 on three counts of indecent exposure.
According to a release for the sheriff’s office, Evans had been seen dressed inappropriately inside and around the Easley and Liberty Post Offices by both postal service employees and post office customers.
Witnesses reported seeing Evans wearing only ladies lingerie, high heel shoes and a black wig. The “outfits” were reported to be sheer see-through, revealing Evans’ private areas.
The victims in these incidents, all women, told police they were shocked and appalled by Evans’ appearance.
Each of them encountered Evans while they were alone, and expressed to authorities fear as a result of the encounter. Police say these witnesses provided the crucial information, which led to Evans’ arrest.
The investigation, which culminated in the arrest of Evans, was initiated by sheriff’s deputies and U.S. Postal Inspectors after receiving information from the Liberty and Easley Police departments on Oct. 31.
Several incidents had occurred between July and October.
