PASCO COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – Detectives charged a 24-year-old man with exposing himself on at least four occasions. The reported incidents happened between July and October 2016 in Land O’Lakes.
Cody Hase is charged with multiple counts of exposure of sexual organs, a Pasco County Sheriff Office spokesperson said.
Detectives said Hase pulled up next to people and asked for directions. While he did so, he would masturbate, according to the sheriff’s office.
Hase drove a blue PT Cruiser, detectives said.
The incidents happened in the Dupree Lakes and Glendale Villas subdivisions.
“Pasco Sheriff’s Detectives worked leads and discovered Hase was the suspect involved in these incidents and his wife had a PT cruiser registered to her. A key component to solving this crime was one of our criminal analysts,” the spokesperson said.
Hase was located Wednesday in Hillsborough County. He admitted to the crimes, detectives said.
He is being held on $4,000 bond.
The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office is asking other potential victims and witnesses to contact the agency.
