3 Men Arrested For Public Indecency At Forestry

Two Scottsburg and a Corydon man were arrested on public indecency and battery charged last Wednesday, July 30, at Clark State Forest near Henryville.

Indiana Conservation Officers arrested Kenneth Nichols, 66, and Michael Stanley, 57, both of Scottsburg, were charged with public indecency and battery, while Jerry Heishman, 60 of Corydon faces a charge of public indecency.

In response to recent complaints, conservation officers stepped up patrols and arrested several individuals for illicit drug use on the property this summer.

During last week’s operation utilizing plain-clothes officers, conservation officers encountered and arrested individuals who allegedly exposed themselves or groped plain-clothes officers.

All three men were arrested without incident and incarcerated at the Clark County Jail.
