From the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office

The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office has arrested a Mandeville-area man after he exposed himself while watching women in the Covington area.

On Tuesday (Feb. 6) STPSO deputies responded to a report from a female who stated she was stopped at a traffic light at Highway 190 and Holiday Blvd., when a silver Hyundai Santa Fe pulled up beside her with a single male occupant.

The female said that the man rolled down his window, leaned his seat back and began staring at her while making motions which led her to believe he was masturbating.

She was able to provide the license plate number of the vehicle, and deputies located the vehicle and conducted a traffic stop.

The driver, Craig Nolinske (DOB 9/10/1954; 828 Shadow Oak Lane, Mandeville) stated his pants were open and his hand was in his underwear but stated he was only adjusting his underwear.

A consensual search of Nolinske’s phone, uncovered a video made earlier in the day of him exposing himself and masturbating while parked in the Claiborne Hill Shopping Center parking lot.

Nolinske was arrested and booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail on the charge of LRS 14:106 Obscenity.

This investigation is ongoing and additional charges are possible.
