NEW HARTFORD, NY – An Oneida County man is under arrest after police say he exposed himself in a grocery store last month.

Police say 40-year-old Jared Gawlas of New Hartford is charged with one count of indecent exposure of a person, which is a violation. He is accused of walking through the Hannaford on January 23 with his genitals exposed. Police say store employees received complaints from customers, and management asked Gawlas to leave.

New Hartford Police subsequently posted surveillance photos of the suspect on Facebook, asking for the public’s help identifying him. He was identified and arrested earlier this week.

Gawlas is scheduled to appear in New Hartford Town Court to answer the charge at an unspecified later date.
