A male western Pennsylvania police officer has been dressing as an Amish woman -- along with a female officer from a neighboring department -- hoping to scare off a man suspected of exposing himself to Amish children.

  Pulaski Township Sgt. Chad Adams says police weren't able to charge the man because of a lack of evidence, but believe he's the same person sentenced to house arrest in January for similar incidents in neighboring Mercer County.
 
Adams says he got help from a female officer in Wampum. The Amish who live in Lawrence County, along the Ohio border, don't want their children to testify in court and agreed to lend the police women's bonnets, aprons and dresses to catch or scare away the suspect.
 
Adams recently revealed the investigation now that the incidents have stopped.
