Walmart Worker Allegedly Prostituted Himself In Store Bathroom During Breaks

A Walmart employee in upstate New York allegedly made very productive use of his time during overnight shifts in the store. Unfortunately, he did so by advertising his services online as a prostitute, then meeting clients in a store bathroom during his breaks. Great efficient use of time, but also kind of illegal.

According to state police, the store bosses became suspicious and alerted authorities about the 22-year-old’s possible side hustle. Police had an undercover officer set up an appointment and offer to exchange sex for money. The man was arrested and charged with prostitution, and has been suspended while Walmart investigates. “We’re appalled that something like this could be happening in one of our stores,” a Walmart spokeswoman told the Glens Falls Post-Star.

It’s also surprising to hear that despite getting rid of the “adult services” section, Craigslist still serves as a venue for prostitutes to hawk their services.
