SLIDELL, La. (AP) — Police in a New Orleans suburb say a health-food store worker is accused of using a $200 company check to pay a prostitute after a back-room encounter.

Surveillance cameras showed it all. That’s what Slidell Police spokesman Detective Daniel Seuzeneau said in a news release. It all came to light when the store’s manager reviewed surveillance footage after finding that a company check was missing.

Seuzeneau said 24-year-old Charles West remained jailed Thursday after being booked Wednesday on charges of theft, forgery and soliciting prostitution. Seuzeneau said he did not know whether West has an attorney.

Police say they plan to arrest the woman for prostitution once they identify her.

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