PORT CHARLOTTE, FL-A Kansas man was charged Tuesday evening with Soliciting for Prostitution after he allegedly propositioned a detective during an undercover operation.

Members of the Narcotics Unit conducted an undercover operation in the area of Jones Loop Road and Knights Drive in Punta Gorda on Tuesday May 6 in response to reports of illegal sexual activity in that area.

Around 8:30 pm, detectives report that Larry Jeff Culp Jr., 43, of 112 Maple Drive in Cawker City Kansas, approached a female operative in a gas station parking lot and offered Money in exchange for straight sex.  Culp allegedly told the woman that he only had $20 with him, but could go to an ATM for more.  She told him they could start with that.

Culp followed her a short distance where other members of the Narcotics Unit were waiting to take him into custody.  He was booked into the Charlotte County Jail on a $1,000 bond.
