TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Tulsa police say an officer has been arrested on a charge that he engaged in prostitution near a church.

The Tulsa World reports that Cpl. David Turner was booked into the city jail Wednesday on possession of a firearm in commission of a felony and engaging in prostitution within 1,000 feet of a church. He was released Thursday after posting $11,500 bond.

A police report said Turner was arrested at a motel during an undercover sting after offering a female undercover officer $40.

The 52-year-old from Broken Arrow has been with the Tulsa Police Department since 1996 and was placed on administrative leave.

It wasn't immediately known whether Turner has a lawyer. Tulsa police did not return a telephone call or email seeking comment.
