Man Arrested For Lewd Behavior

Canaveral National Seashore

National Park News

Rangers from the park’s Playalinda District recently investigated a Wisconsin man for filming an unclothed minor on a park beach. This area has been frequented for many years by nudists. A local family had come to the beach for a day of nude recreation. As the young girl’s mother dried the girl off, the man attempted to film her. The girl’s father confronted him and a fight ensued. Rangers Rob Romer and Ben Hansel responded to a 911 call from the Brevard County Sherriff’s Office concerning a fight in progress. The man with the camera fled south on the beach, but Hansel found him and obtained his consent to look at the images on the camera. These were shared with the sex crimes unit of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office. Information obtained during a joint agency interview led to a search warrant being issued for the man’s home in Evansville, Wisconsin. Detectives with the Rock County Sherriff’s Office who served the warrant discovered child erotica, child pornography, and a number of camera systems. The Rock County Sherriff’s Office arrested the man when he arrived at the local airport on his return trip from Florida. Romer’s investigation led to the arrest of a man who hadn’t been on any agency’s radar and showed excellent interagency cooperation.
