Husband of Clatskanie mayor accused of repeatedly exposing himself at drive-through coffee shop

CLATSKANIE, OR (KPTV) -

The husband of Clatskanie’s mayor is accused of exposing himself to a coffee shop employee on a weekly basis for the past two years, according to probable cause arrest affidavit.

Oregon State Police arrested Raymond Pohl, 64, on 30 counts of public indecency Tuesday.

A female employee at Flowers ‘N Fluff told police Pohl exposed his genitals to her at the coffee shop’s drive through window “at least twice a week for two or more years,” the affidavit said.

The woman said the exposure was unwanted and unsolicited.       

She also took pictures, according to court documents.

The state trooper who arrested Pohl wrote he was provided with photographs “which clearly depict Raymond Pohl, sitting with his penis exposed.”

According to the affidavit, the Columbia County District Attorney asked Oregon State Police to investigate the allegations, which were first reported to the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office.

Pohl posted $30,000 bail and was released from jail Wednesday afternoon.

He did not speak to reporters when he arrived home.

Diane Pohl, the mayor of Clatskanie, did not respond to a request for comment on her husband’s arrest.

Earlier this month, Diane Pohl came under fire after she wrote a letter to the editor thanking former Clatskanie Police Chief Martin Hoover for his service.

Hoover resigned amid allegations he made racist comments.

In a previous interview, Diane Pohl told Fox 12 she was referring to Hoover’s work before the allegations were made and condemned racist comments.

OSP is continuing to investigation the allegations against Raymond Pohl and say he may have more victims.

Police say usually drove a blue 2005 Chevrolet pickup. The truck had a canopy with a rack and an Oregon license plate of "SAR.”

Investigators would like to hear from anyone who believes they are a victim.

If you have information, contact Sergeant Luke Schwartz at 503-731-3030.
