The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office has arrested five men on charges of obscenity, following an undercover sting operation at public restrooms in Lake Charles.

On July 10, Vice detectives with the sheriff's office received numerous complaints of indecent behavior at the public restrooms near the children's water fountain at the park near north end of the Lake Charles Civic Center and at the beach along Interstate 10 in Lake Charles.

"During the undercover sting operation, detectives arrested... five men, who were observed masturbating while inside the men's restroom areas in plain view," said Kim Myers, spokeswoman for the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office, in a news release.

"All were booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center either on July 10 or July 11 and charged with obscenity," Myers said.

Arrested were: 70-year-old Henry Carrel of Sulphur, 65-year-old Donald Duplechin of Lake Charles, 59-year-old Jimmie Fountain of Vinton, 76-year-old Dwight Freeman of Lake Charles and 56-year-old Richard Vincent of Lake Charles.

Bonds were set at $5,000 for all five, except for Vincent, whose bond was set at $4,000.
