In less than a day after putting a surveillance photo on social media, the Hall County Sheriff’s Office received information leading to the identity of a man accused of exposing himself to a Gainesville convenience store clerk.

Jorge Luis Perez, 21, of Gainesville, turned himself in to the Hall County Jail Saturday, April 27 on a misdemeanor charge of public indecency. He was released on a $1,300 bond that day.

The sheriff’s office posted a surveillance photo on Facebook of the suspect April 24, described as being “roughly 28 years old” who reportedly “exposed his genitals to the female clerk” around 10:10 p.m. April 17 at the Candler Road Chevron.

“Within 24 hours of disseminating the photo, Investigators received information from the public that led to the suspect’s identity and the warrant being issued on Thursday, April 25,” Sheriff’s Office spokesman Derreck Booth wrote in a news release.

No attorney information was available Monday, April 29, from Magistrate Court officials.
