SLIDELL, LA (WAFB) -  A store employee in Slidell used a company check to pay a woman he called a prostitute for sex.

And it all was caught on video.

Charles West, 24, struck up a conversation with a female customer at closing time on July 14. After the conversation, the two went to the back room where she performed oral sex.  West then paid the female $250 for her services using a company check. He forged the manager’s signature.  

The next day, Slidell police were waiting for West. When he arrived, he was arrested for theft, forgery, and solicitation of a prostitute.  West told police he never met the female until that night and that she “randomly came into the store and offered him oral sex for money.”

“We can’t make this stuff up,” says Slidell Police Chief Randy Smith. “I’m at a loss for words! This is unbelievable.”

Slidell Police are still working to identify the female who will ultimately be arrested for prostitution.
