PUNTA GORDA, Fla.- A Kansas man was charged Tuesday evening with Soliciting for Prostitution after he propositioned a detective during an undercover operation, according to the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office.

The undercover operation was conducted in the area of Jones Loop Road and Knights Drive today in response to reports of illegal sexual activity in that area.

Around 8:30 p.m., detectives said that 43-year-old Larry Jeff Culp Jr. approached a female operative in a gas station parking lot and offered Monday 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.
