Newburgh Police pledge to clean up the town Overlook Park. Nine men were arrested in the latest sting targeting public indecency at the park. Both Newburgh Police and county deputies took part.

Now, Newburgh Police will take over sole jurisdiction of the park and the chief pledges to attack the problem there. Chief Brett Sprinkle asks, “Did you see where they walked down into the woods? We want to clear all of that area out, and take all of the brush out, so you can see from the parking lot, what going on. And hopefully that will deter a little bit too. That one thing I want to get with our city or town council on.”

The park is closed right now for sewer repair. It expected to re open sometime next week. The Newburgh Police Department will take over the park patrols in a few months.

And we received several calls regarding the charges against the nine suspects in the latest sting. Police say the men charged with public indecency, exposed themselves in public view. The ones charged with battery allegedly touched the undercover officer in an inappropriate sexual manner

UPDATE, WED, 7:00 AM: Another man is caught in a sting operation to prevent indecency at a Warrick County park. Roger Rice, a 51 year old Newburgh resident, was charged with public indecency.

But there are several men that were apprehended prior to Rice.

Kim Myrick, 49, and 41 year old Richard Baumberger, both of Newburgh were charged with public indecency and resisting arrest.

Warrick County Sheriff detectives say both single and married men frequent the park, searching for other men to engage in sexual acts. Officials say the men would meet in bathrooms, or follow each other into the woods. Warrick County Sheriff Sergeant Aaron Bennett says it happening within feet of families and it needs to stop. “Once they bring it here into a public place, and this goes on; that what we are paid to do, is try to put an end to it,” says Bennett.

The men are charged with misdemeanors, but police are hopeful the publicity will keep them away from the park for good. They say the ultimate victims are the spouses of many of these men, who have no idea what their husbands are doing in their free time.
