A 27-year-old Florida man was arrested Thursday on a pimping charge during an undercover Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office investigation.
The man is charged with living off the earnings of a prostitute, cocaine possession and transporting a person for prostitution.
Jacksonville police were apparently digging into online ads for escorts when they came across the man, according to reports.
An undercover officer posed as a customer and met with the man and an alleged prostitute, who apparently agreed to have sex with the detective for $160, according to police.
The man and woman were both arrested.
