GLENDALE, AZ (CBS5) -

A Glendale man trying to encourage women to become prostitutes was caught in an online sting by the FBI and Valley police.

During the week of July 28, Glendale Police Department was working with the FBI and undercover detectives began posting escort advertisements.

Authorities said Bryant Edward Johns, 26, told the undercover cop that he wasn't a pimp but was just a "hustler from Phoenix," according to the police report.

For nearly a month, he told her what she should charge for sex acts and how they would split the money with him getting nearly 75 percent. He told her he'd make sure she got where she needed to be and would by the hotel rooms, police said.

On Aug. 28, Johns went to meet with who he believed to be an escort and he was arrested.

He had a condom and $2 in his pocket and told police he was lying to the woman and just wanted to "smoke marijuana and have sex with her," according to the police report.

During an interview with police, Johns said he did not have any other girls working for him, but he has tried to have girls work for him in the past, but they were "just playing him," the police report states.

Johns is a convicted felon with prior arrests for misconduct involving weapons, aggravated robbery and drug-related offenses.
