CEDAR RAPIDS — A Cedar Rapids man is accused of exposing himself to a woman inside a storage unit.

According to the Linn County Attorney’s Office, around 10:50 a.m. Thursday, 23-year-old Jordan N. Sanford entered the U-Haul office at 1550 16th Ave. SW. Police said Sanford told a female employee working the front desk that he had a moisture problem in the storage unit he was renting. Sanford asked the woman to come inspect the unit with him.

Sanford was arrested and has been charged with indecent exposure, a serious misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail.
