Justin Wagers, 35, of Martinsville, who is being held on charges of public indecency and performing sexual conduct in the presence of a minor, is connected to the FBI probe, officials said.

Meanwhile, private-eye CEO Bo Dietl blasted Bloomington Chief Michael Diekhoff. “The family shouldn’t be learning about this from the media,” Dietl told The Post. “The Bloomington police have kept this family in the dark for four years now.” In 2011, Dietl called the top cop “Gomer Pyle” — accusing him of not cooperating with his gumshoes and of soft-pedaling in the probe. He apologized then, but renewed his attack Friday. "The chief of police used to be a traffic cop. Maybe he should still be a traffic cop,” he said.

In total, he’s been charges with sex crimes, including public indecency and vicarious sexual gratification, more than two dozen times in several counties. In 2011, Wagers was picked up again for intimidation, invasion of privacy and harassment in Monroe County and public indecency in Johnson County.

Most recently, Wagers was arrested and accused of being a serial flasher by Johnson County Sheriff’s Office investigators. A woman claimed Wagers exposed himself to her while she was riding her bike in Greenwood last August. Investigators believe he committed similar crimes in Franklin and Edinburgh. He is now in custody for those crimes at the Johnson County Jail.
