VERO BEACH — Police continue to search for a 52-year-old woman accused of engaging in public sex acts – after the arrests of three others also involved – that occurred in the downtown area near businesses.
Officers are looking for Lisa Goldenberg. Police previously arrested Francis Rhinehart, 57, Peter Jankowski, 47, and Myra Olin, 56, on charges of disorderly conduct for participating in the acts.
