An Ocean Springs man was charged with indecent exposure Thursday, according to D'Iberville Police.

D'Iberville Police Department's Public Information Officer Clay Jones said, William Franklin's arrest stems from an investigation that started October 10.

A witness reportedly told police Franklin was watching women walk in and out of stores at the Promenade Shopping Center in D'Iberville.

That witness was able to give police a description of Franklin, his vehicle and his tag number.

Thanks to information provided by the witness, Jones said, officers were able to identify the suspect as Franklin.

Officers later spotted Franklin in the Promenade parking lot watching women walk in and out of stores. When they approached him, Jones said, they saw him exposing himself in his vehicle.

D'Iberville Lt. Terry Hines said Franklin is guidance counselor for the Moss Point School District.  

Franklin was arrested and transported to Harrison County Adult Detention Center, where he has posted a $1,000 cash bond.
