PINELLAS COUNTY – Detectives assigned to the Robbery & Homicide Unit have arrested a Clearwater man after he exposed himself in a business parking lot in Oldsmar.

On February 24, 2024, at approximately 8:30 p.m., an adult female was walking to her vehicle in the parking lot of Ulta, located at 3142 Tampa Road in Oldsmar, when she observed a male in the driver's seat of a gold Chevy Equinox. The male was actively masturbating and made direct eye contact with the victim. Detectives say the suspect was described as a bi-racial male, wearing a trench coat with a hood covering his head. The victim advised the male was not wearing any other clothing under the trench coat. The victim immediately called 911, however, the suspect fled the scene prior to deputies arriving.

Detectives learned that the victim observed the same vehicle in the parking lot two days later, and the same male was seated in the driver's seat. Through various investigative techniques, detectives identified the suspect as 24-year-old Jonte Lynn. Detectives say Lynn was previously convicted of two counts of Exposure of Sexual Organs in 2022 and 2023 and placed on probation. In those cases, the victims provided similar accounts of those incidents, stating Lynn was seated in his gold Chevy Equinox, actively masturbating.

On May 29, 2024, detectives arrested Lynn and charged him with one count of Exposure of Sexual Organs and one count of Violation of Probation. When detectives interviewed Lynn, he was cooperative and acknowledged that he has impulses, which he cannot control.

If you have any information regarding this case or believe you are a victim, please contact Detective Hulme at 727-582-6322.

The investigation continues.

Below is Lynn’s booking photo and a photo of the Chevy Equinox.
