The Hillsborough County deputies are trying to track down the man wanted for inappropriately exposing himself at a Wawa in Tampa on the morning of March 14.

The incident happened at the Wawa on Bearss Avenue East and deputies just released photos of the suspect. 

Deputies say he was in a light purple Buick LeSabre (possibly early 2000 model) with large chrome rims on the lifted frame. 

The suspect was seated in the back seat of his vehicle when another gas station customer parked at the next gas pump over, heard noises coming from his car. 

The victim says the suspect "winked" at her and she became scared and got in her car and drove away from the scene. 

The suspect is described as a black male, 18-35 years of age, approximately 5'8" to 6' tall, 170-200 pounds, wearing a black t-shirt with a red Nike symbol on it and multi-color sweatpants and black tennis shoes. 

Crime Stoppers is offering a $3,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
