F’ville man charged with public indecency


Fayette County Sheriff’s investigators made an arrest on June 13 in connection with two public indecency cases which occurred on March 19 and June 4.

Investigators have arrested Jeremy Craig Longstreth, 38, of Fayetteville and charged him with stalking and two counts of public indecency, according to sheriff’s spokesman Brent Rowan.

Rowan said the cases involved Longstreth exposing himself to two female victims at Fayette County parks. The first incident occurred on March 14 at McCurry Park on McDonough Road when Longstreth followed a female victim who was exercising and exposed himself to her. Longstreth was charged with stalking and public indecency in that case.

The second incident occurred when Longstreth exposed himself to a second female victim at Patriot Park on Redwine Road. Longstreth was also charged with public indecency in that case, Rowan said.

Rowan said both of these incidents occurred during daytime hours while the victims were exercising. All of the known victims were alone at the time of the incident. The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind its citizens to exercise in groups, stay aware of your surroundings and do not hesitate to call for help if you see anything suspicious, Rowan said.

It is possible that similar incidents as this may have occurred but have not yet been reported to law enforcement. Anyone with information on similar incidents is asked to call the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office Inv. Josh Shelton at 770-716-4777.

In another case, sheriff’s investigators made an arrest on June 11 in connection with an identity fraud case which occurred on March 8. Investigators have arrested Dwight Weiters, 52, of Atlanta charging him with identity fraud.

Rowan said the case involved Weiters cashing a forged check in the amount of $948.25 belonging to a Fayette County business.
