Moultrie police charged two people early Tuesday morning in connection with an alleged sexual encounter for money.
Trixie Lea Steele, 40, of 1309 Highway 133 S., was charged with prostitution. Kwabena Perez Harris, 37, of 3109 S. Veterans Parkway, Apt. C-9, was charged with solicitation of prostitution.
Moultrie police officers on patrol saw a Cadillac Deville pull onto First Avenue Southeast at 1:03 a.m. Tuesday. The car then stopped in the middle of the roadway, and an officer got behind the car and turned on his patrol car’s blue lights to prevent an accident.
The officers spoke with the Deville’s occupants, identified as Steele and Harris, who was driving. Harris was telling one officer that the car broke down when the other officer asked Steele what she was trying to hide. The officer’s report identified the object as an open condom.
The officer spoke with Steele, and she stated Harris allegedly wanted to pay her for sexual intercourse. She told him she would only perform oral sex with a condom on, and she allegedly charged him $10 to perform the act. He had called her several times about the alleged act, she said.
Steele was placed under arrest, and the officers asked Harris about what she was doing with him. He stated she had asked for a ride home and he had only met her that night. When asked why he had called her, he stated he had met her earlier in the day and was trying to be friendly.
Harris was also placed under arrest, and both he and Steele were taken to Colquitt County Jail.
