The “lewd and lascivious” act landed Dwight Eddington Jr, of Sanford, in jail for indecent exposure.
The incident occurred at the Bealls near the Seminole Towne Center in Sanford.
Around 6 p.m., the store’s security guard watched Eddington as he walked around the store, Sanford police reported.
When the guard went to look at surveillance video, he saw that Eddington “had exposed his genitals and continued to touch himself while walking around the store,” according to the arrest report.
The guard told police Eddington looked to be following a customer around the store.
Once police arrived at the store, they asked Eddington was he was doing. He denied committing any inappropriate sexual acts.
He told police “that he had an itch and had to expose himself in order to scratch,” according to the arrest report.
Eddington has since been released from jail.
