(10-19-17) On Tuesday, October 17th, 2017 Celina police took a report of a man exposing himself to an elementary age girl. She was walking in the 900 block of Echo Street walking to a neighbor’s house. The incident actually took place on October 7th.
The suspect was reported as being a white man possibly in his 50’s, graying or white hair and beard with glasses and wearing a red shirt. He drove a dark red car. The information was posted on Facebook by the Celina Police Department looking for leads. That posting lead to a lead being phoned into the Celina P.D. and followed up on by Detective Ron Waltmire and Detective Steve Yoder.
As a result of the investigation an arrest was made today of a Rockford man, 39 year old Chad A. Ralston. Ralston is currently being held in the Mercer Co. Jail for a $100,000 bond on charges of indecent exposure.
Felony charges are expected to be filed later today.
