Police investigating the superintendent of the Rocori school district in central Minnesota say he may have exposed himself more than a dozen times at different stores in the St. Cloud area in recent months.

Scott Staska was arrested last week after he was captured on video exposing himself to employees at a Kwik Trip store in Waite Park, Minn. He has not yet been charged.

A follow-up investigation found a total of 16 incidents of indecent exposure from November through March, said Waite Park Police Chief Dave Bentrud. They occurred at Kwik Trip and Super America stores and at two stores at Crossroads Mall, but were not reported at the time.

Police have no information that any minor children were present during any of the incidents, Bentrud said.

Staska could face misdemeanor charges and is expected to make his first court appearance within the next four to six weeks.

He is on paid administrative leave from the Rocori school district, where he has been superintendent since 2002.

Rocori is named for the cities of Rockville, Cold Spring and Richmond.
