A Winter Haven man was arrested, accused of showing girls porn and exposing himself at their bus stops or near their schools.
Buck Johnson, 35, faces a number of charges, including stalking and lewd exhibition as well as drug charges. Polk County Sherifff's deputies said the incidents happened in April and May; there were 10 reported incidents. Authorities said 8 of the victims were girls and the other two victims were adults.
"…but with all that stuff that they got him from (I) was like I was surprised at that. I didn't think that," Dan Ruppert said.
Ruppert lives near Johnson. He said he noticed law enforcement cars in the neighborhood last week.
According to authorities, the incidents happened in Lake Whales, Auburndale, and Winter Haven.
"It's disgusting. It absolutely is. It's sickening," Paul of Winter Haven said.
Paul did not want ABC Action News to use his last name. Paul lives in the neighborhood where authorities said one of the incidents occurred. He does not know Johnson, but he is a concerned parent.
"It makes me very angry," Paul of Winter Haven said.
Authorities said they charged Johnson with two counts of possession of child pornography after searching his computer and cell phone.
Authorities said Johnson faces charges in Winter Haven filed by the police department for lewd exhibition and two-way communication device to commit a felony.
