PULASKI TOWNSHIP, Pa. – After completing their investigation, the Pulaski Township Police Department released a photo of a male police officer who went undercover as an Amish woman to catch a sexual predator.
Sergeant Chad Adams posted the photo on the police department's Facebook page.
Adams said a man was masturbating in front of Amish children in January. He said they didn't catch the suspect, but believes officers arrested him in another county because similar incidents reported in other areas stopped.
Adams wrote in the Facebook post, "I wanted to share with you that we will use all means available to try and protect our children. That includes dressing up as an Amish woman to attempt to apprehend a pervert!"
According to a report from the Associated Press, the Amish didn't want their children to testify about the incidents, so they lent Adams and another officer women's bonnets, aprons and dresses.
