A 29-year-old man in Moundville was arrested Monday after he allegedly posed as a woman online and solicited sex from an undercover police officer.

According to court documents filed this week, Moundville Police Officers saw an ad posted online and worried that they may be dealing with a victim of human trafficking.

Undercover officers responded to the ad and drove to a home where they found a 29-year-old man who had been posing as a woman.

The man then allegedly offered to perform oral sex on a police officer for $40 and was arrested and charged with solicitation of prostitution, a Class-A misdemeanor.

The suspect was arrested early Monday morning and booked in the Hale County Jail on  $2,500 bond. He remained there Tuesday morning.
