A Collinsville man was arrested Wednesday on allegations that he impersonated an FBI agent while soliciting a woman he thought was a prostitute.

Officers with the Tulsa Police Department’s Vice Unit were contacted about 5 p.m. by 18-year-old Anthony Maurice Harris, who was under the impression that he was contacting a prostitute on a website, police said in a news release.

Harris stated in messages that he was an FBI agent who had recently been assigned to the Tulsa area, police said.

“If you don’t want to go to jail, we will have to do some negotiating,” police said Harris stated in a message. Harris then listed numerous sexual acts that the woman would have to perform in exchange for his not putting her in jail, police said.

Harris was directed to go to a hotel in the area of 81st Street and Mingo Road, where he was told the prostitute would meet him, police said.

Harris was arrested in the hotel’s parking lot. He was booked into the Tulsa Jail on complaints of impersonating an officer, engaging in prostitution and possessing drug paraphernalia, according to jail records.

He is being held in lieu of $2,350 bond. He has a court appearance set for Jan. 4.
