Library flasher one book you don't want to open

The Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office is looking for a penis -- one attached to the guy pictured here. On September 12 at around 1:30 p.m., he entered the Koelbel Library, 5955 S. Holly Street in Centennial, and promptly gave others in the facility a chance to check out... his man part. There's not a lot of ambiguity on the ACSO's wanted poster. It reads in part, "The suspect pictured exposed himself while inside the library," which suggests that security cameras caught more than a glimpse of the wiggle worm in question. May I speak for everyone in thanking the authorities for not making that particular image public.

The suspect is described as being "possibly Hispanic," five-eight to five-ten, 180-210 pounds, and on the day in question, he wore a black T-shirt and black jogging pants with, presumably, an easy access elastic waist band. Phone 303-795-4711 with information that might help deputies with booking of a different sort.
