Police calls show a report of another indecent exposure incident at a Harford "adult bookstore," even after county officials said they are following up on complaints and cracking down on the businesses.
The call came in around 2:50 p.m. Wednesday, according to police calls for service, for indecent exposure at Bush River Books & Video in the 3900 block of Pulaski Highway. The caller said two men were performing sexual acts on each other in the store and "a bunch of people" were in the back.
Harford County sheriff's deputies went to the "adult bookstore" to check out the complaint and saw no violations, Monica Worrell, spokesperson for the sheriff's office, said Thursday.
This report comes days after Harford County State's Attorney Joseph Cassilly said he would look into penalizing businesses with repeat offenses. The Harford County Sheriff's Office is also looking at the history of this Abingdon bookstore in particular, Cassilly said.
One of the options, Cassilly added, is a real property law passed several years ago that deals with what actions community organizations or potentially government attorneys can take against places that fail to comply with the laws.
