Anne Arundel County police charged a Glen Burnie man with indecent exposure Thursday after they said they got a key tip on Facebook.

Police had received five complaints this month regarding a man allegedly exposing himself in Glen Burnie. Three of the incidents were reported in the 7400 block of Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard, one was on Mountain Road and one was in the 6700 block of Ritchie Highway.

On Wednesday, police distributed photos taken from surveillance video of possible suspects through media and social media. At the time, they weren't sure if one man or two men were responsible for the incidents.

Police received a tip from someone who saw the pictures on Facebook.

Police charged Robert James Hess, 39, of the 1500 block of Ingalls Road in Glen Burnie with three counts of indecent exposure and three counts of disorderly conduct, according to court records.
