AVON – A postal employee was ticketed for allegedly showed his genitals to two women and his naked body to one man at the Avon Post Office.Avon police ticketed Randal C. Tolbert, 54, of Gypsum, for two counts of misdemeanor indecent exposure, according a department report. Tolbert exposed his body on three separate occasions to three postal employees over an unknown period of time, authorities said. Meanwhile, a manager who knew about one of the incidents did not report them to police, authorities said.Tolbert was released June 14.Information about the incident was not available until Thursday afternoon because of a problem with a police records database, said Avon police spokeswoman Krista Jaramillo. U.S. Postal Service investigators found that Tolbert did not expose himself to the woman, said Al DeSarro, spokesman for the postal service. They interviewed employees during a month-long investigation, he said.”There were no facts, evidence or substance that this team could find to support it. It was basically this person’s word against Mr. Tolbert’s,” DeSarro said. He should be restricted or suspended, said Kathy Morse, attorney for one of the women, whose names police did not provide. “At this point, they’ve not taken any action with respect to Mr. Tolbert, and that is inadequate in my opinion,” Morse said.The woman has not yet filed a civil lawsuit, Morse said.The postal service did not discipline Tolbert because he was not found guilty of anything, DeSarro said.
