Fairmount City Man Accused of Exposing Himself to Mail Carriers

REDBANK TWP., Pa. (EYT) – A Fairmount City man is facing criminal charges after he allegedly exposed himself repeatedly to two mail carriers.

According to court documents, on Thursday, February 1, the New Bethlehem Police Department filed the following charges against 46-year-old Jody Allen Ganoe, of Fairmount City:

– Indecent Exposure, Misdemeanor 2 (three counts)
– Open Lewdness, Misdemeanor 3 (three counts)

According to court documents, Ganoe is scheduled to appear in District Judge Jeffrey Miller’s office at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, February 20, for a preliminary arraignment.

According to a criminal complaint, on October 2, 2017, Sgt. Nicole Peck, of the New Bethlehem Police Department, received an indecent exposure complaint from two U.S. Postal Service workers.

Both postal service employees stated that while they were delivering mail to 337 Townline Road in Redbank Township, Ganoe exposed his genitals and performed lewd acts on numerous occasions between May and September 2017, according to the complaint.

Sgt. Peck interviewed Ganoe on January 26 with USPS Agent Neil Hennigan present. After reading Ganoe his rights, he agreed to speak with both law enforcement officers. Ganoe asked, “If I had a problem, could I get help to stay out of jail?” Sgt. Peck and Agent Hennigan then started talking with Ganoe about the problem he was having, the complaint indicates.

Ganoe said the first time it occurred sometime between April to May of 2017 when he was just urinating, but he did get excited when he saw the mail carrier because he didn’t get caught and that he was scared as well. Ganoe also said he got an adrenaline rush while exposing himself, the complaint states.

Ganoe then said between incidents, he purposely stayed inside the house on Saturdays until he knew the mail would be delivered, so he wouldn’t feel the urge to expose himself. He stated that he saw the behavior progressing from just urinating to fully exposing himself, according to the complaint.

Ganoe stated that it was like a movie with a “scene” when you would get a little worked up, the complaint states.

Ganoe also asked Sgt. Peck and Agent Henigan several times if they would apologize to the workers, and he then made a written statement, according to the complaint.
