Man Arrested for Soliciting Prostitute during Honeymoon

Most often, honeymoons are a chance for a new husband and wife to celebrate after their wedding. Couples go to romantic international cities or tropical islands to spend time with one another. Sometimes, though, that time away from the world includes a crime or two. For one man, it was a crime that would get him in trouble not only with the law, but probably also with his new wife.

Lucy 5-22Mohammed U. Ahmed, from Lincolnwood, was reported missing by his wife on their honeymoon in Orange County, Fla. earlier this month. The sheriff’s department spokeswoman said that she reported it after he did not return to their hotel room, and was then informed that he had been arrested nearby.

Ahmed told the arresting officers that he was on his honeymoon, and police reported that he then contacted the undercover detective that he found in an ad online. The police said that he offered her $100 for sexual intercourse after telling her that he was “horny.” According to police, this was the second time that Ahmed had used the same website and offered a woman money for sex.

Police also found a marijuana cigarette in a cigarette box of Ahmed’s that he admitted to buying from someone at his hotel. Ahmed was “charged with offering, committing or engaging in lewdness and possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia,” according to the Chicago Sun Times.

According to federal and Illinois state laws, possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia are both illegal.

Other items that are not created for drug use can also be used in paraphernalia cases such as credit cards, small mirrors, lighters and razor blades.
