Queensbury, NY — A Walmart employee allegedly engaged in prostitution in the store bathroom while he was on his break.
This form of alleged “moonlighting” occurred during the overnight shift in an upstate New York store.
The suspect, 22, reportedly made arrangements with his male clients via (where else?) Craigslist, but eventually Walmart store management got wise to to what allegedly was going on. According to authorities, managers at the store “received an anonymous complaint of a male subject performing sexual acts in a secluded location” which turned out to be the bathroom.
They notified the cops who in turn set up a sting operation for the alleged multi-tasking Walmart worker. “State Police said store officials became suspicious of his activity and notified State Police, and an undercover officer arranged for a meeting with him at the store and arrested Bills when he agreed to perform a sex act for money, officials said.”
The worker, since suspended from his Walmart third-shift job pending an investigation by the discount retailing giant, faces a Class B misdemeanor prostitution count and is due back in court on April 29. If convicted, he could be jailed for up to three months.
A Walmart spokeswoman said that “We’re appalled that something like this could be happening in one of our stores.” Walmart of course is fully cooperating with law enforcement in this matter.
Authorities also contend that the same man may have posted an ad on Craigslist soliciting men to meet him at a local library for casual encounters. The ad alluded to the fact that he was looking for some extra spending money.
The family-owned Walmart is the biggest private employer in the world with over two million employees and is the largest retailer in the world.
