Anyone giving any thought to a life of crime wants to read on remember that security people have good memories and they remember faces. They are trained as well to look for the way people walk and look around.

On Saturday September 20th 2014 at approximately 3:20 PM, Mapleview Mall security contacted police after they observed a man in the mall believed to be responsible for exposing himself to children at the Starbucks on two occasions in July 2014.

Mapleview Mall security officers maintained observations of the man until police arrived at which time it was confirmed that this man was the one responsible for the two incidents at Mapleview Mall as well as another incident that occurred on July 25th 2014 at the Starbucks on Appleby Line in Burlington.

Joseph Ralph BEESLEY (55 yrs) of Eastwood Crescent in Niagara Falls will appear for a bail hearing at the Milton Court on Tuesday September 23rd 2014 charged with the following offences

Indecent Exposure to persons under 16 yrs (3 counts)
Indecent Act in a Public Place ( 2 counts)
Criminal Harassment

All the security people at Mapleview Mall had to go on was this description:

Male white,
approximately 5’8”,
large build, 230-250 lbs,
bald head,
wearing baggy grey track short pants,
green t-shirt,
white and black running shoes,
wearing black sunglasses and carrying a small black bag.

That was enough – Beesley will be in court tomorrow afternoon for a bail hearing.
