Kingfisher man charged with indecent exposure, possession at Enid Walmart

ENID, Okla. — A 36-year-old Kingfisher man arrested for allegedly masturbating in Enid’s Walmart parking lot on Valentine’s Day was charged Wednesday in district court.

Dustin Matthew Stafford was charged with felony counts of indecent exposure and possession of a controlled dangerous substance. He was also charged with misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to an Enid Police Department report, officers responded to a call at 1:17 a.m. Valentine’s Day of a man watching a pornographic movie and masturbating in his pickup truck.

Officers arrived and found the vehicle of the window all the way down and a completely nude man, later identified as Stafford, sitting in the driver’s seat, according to the report. Officers noted in the report the man’s genitals were in plain view.

When Stafford saw police approach, he covered his genitals with his hands and said, “I am not doing anything,” according to the report. Stafford then attempted to roll up the window and had to be told to stop several times.

When asked why he was nude, Stafford told officers, “I don’t know I was asleep,” according to the report. After being asked several times why he was nude, Stafford said he remembers taking off his socks because they were wet but did not remember taking off any more clothing. He said the last thing he remembered was turning on his truck’s heater.

Officers asked Stafford if he was watching pornography on the monitor mounted on the vehicle’s visor, and he said he wasn’t, according to the report. Stafford said he was at the store to purchase a heater for his daughter, but did not know why he was sleeping in the parking lot.

Police spoke with the woman who reported the incident. She said she could see a truck with its window partly down in the parking lot, and she could see clearly inside the vehicle. She said she could see a pornographic movie playing on a monitor in the vehicle and a man grabbing his genitals in a way it appeared he was masturbating.

Officers took Stafford to jail and a search of vehicle found paraphernalia and a white crystalline substance that tested positive for methamphetamine.

Online court documents do not list an appearance date for Stafford, or whether he has an attorney.

Online court records also show Stafford has convictions in Garfield County for charges of indecent exposure and attempting to elude police, which he pleaded guilty to in April of 2005. Records that detail those charges were not available Wednesday afternoon.

Stafford also pleaded guilty in 2000 to two charges of second-degree forgery and a count of forgery filed against him in 1999 in Garfield County.
