SARASOTA COUNTY DEPUTIES ARRESTED SIX PEOPLE TUESDAY FOR A VARIETY OF INDECENT EXPOSURE RELATED CRIMES AT CASPERSEN BEACH IN VENICE.  DEPUTIES SAY THEY HAD RECEIVED NUMEROUS COMPLAINTS ABOUT SEXUAL ACTIVITY AT THE BEACH, SO THEY SET UP A STING OPERATION NEAR THE PICNIC TABLES AND ALONG THE EASTERN TRAILS NEAR THE WATERWAY.  DEPUTIES SAY THE MEN, RANGING IN AGE FROM 37 TO 81, WERE EITHER ENGAGED IN INAPPROPRIATE CONDUCT OR EXPOSED THEIR SEXUAL ORGANS IN THE PRESENCE OF UNDERCOVER DETECTIVES.  TWO OF THE MEN WERE FROM VENICE, TWO FROM NORTH PORT, AND ONE EACH WAS FROM NOKOMIS AND SARASOTA.  CASPERSEN BEACH HAS BEEN IN THE NEWS RECENTLY AS A PLACE WHERE NUDISTS LIKE TO GATHER, BUT OFFICIALS SAY THESE MEN WERE NOT A PART OF THAT ACTIVITY.
