Deputies search for man who's been tying pantyhose to cars

Deputies: Cross-dressing man spotted in Home Depot parking lot

FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla. – Flagler County deputies are asking for help to identify a cross-dressing man they say has been tying women's pantyhose to vehicles in a business parking lot.

The sheriff's office said it received a call about the man, who was seen leaving the pantyhose on vehicles at a Home Depot.

"To be so bold in the middle of the day to do something like this, we want to identify this individual so we can reach out to him and make contact," Cmdr. Steve Brandt said.

Brandt said the anonymous complaint filed two days ago said a man was tying pantyhose to the vehicles of Houligan's employees.

"We don't know if this is a local person. We don't know if it's somebody traveling through town and stops in areas and does this," Brandt said. "It did happen over multiple days, so we think it's probably somebody in this area."

The report also said the man followed employees from the Home Depot parking lot where they park to the back of the restaurant door.

"This behavior in and amongst itself could be many different things, but we would like to identify this person ad talk to them in case this behavior were to escalate into something else," Brandt said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Flagler County Sheriff's Office at 386-313-4911 or CrimeStoppers to remain anonymous at 1-888-277-TIPS.
