Russellville, Ky. — A Southern Baptist pastor in Kentucky was charged with indecent exposure in an arrest that police credit to social media.
Kevin Lohse, pastor of Woodlawn Baptist Church, Russellville, Ky., was arrested Feb. 26 after police identified him as the man seen on surveillance video exposing himself to a girl shopping in the junior section of a local department store.
Police in Russellville, Ky., posted on Facebook an image of an unidentified man accused of indecent exposure captured on in-store surveillance video. One week and 646 shares later, Lohse turned himself in and confirmed he was the man in the security footage, according to a police report quoted by WBKO television in Bowling Green, Ky. Police called it “a prime example of community policing.”
