Pontes was charged in connection with a case where police said a man exposed himself to two children outside the Target store in Plattsburgh on Aug. 20. State Police posted on Facebook about the incident last month, which led to tips that pointed investigators to Pontes, and he was located this week in Ulster County, officials said.

Pontes was arraigned in Plattsburgh Town Court and sent to Clinton County Jail for lack of bail.
