49-year-old Joseph Lamar Conn said that he wanted to simply catch a few rays by sunbathing nude.

It was the doing it on his front porch in Florida that managed to catch the attention of the Ocala Police Department.

Conn, a registerred sex offender, was taken into custody Monday for allegedly exposing himself while holding a rubber penis in his hand.

Officers, answering a call from a neighbor, drove to Conn’s home where they allegedly saw him lying nude on a blanket and gripping a rubber phallus.

When Conn spotted the cops, he wrapped himself in the blanket and ducked inside the house and reemerged wearing shorts.

Arresting officer, Anthony Reghetti, asked Conn why he had been naked and the suspect told him he likes to sunbathe while holding the sex toy.

He added that he wasn’t aware he could be seen from the street, which is also home to a Methodist church.

Conn was found guilty in 2002 of principal lewd assault and sexual battery on a victim younger than 16, and was released from prison in March after serving a one-year sentence for violating sex offender rules.

Conn was taken to the Marion County Jail.
