Anthony Simmons Mugshot

CHESTERFIELD, Mo. (KMOV.com) - A 32-year-old Chesterfield man has been arrested after allegedly soliciting sex from a teenage girl in exchange for a vaping device. 

Prosecutors charged Anthony Simmons with one count of statutory sodomy Monday.

According to police, Simmons initially met a 15-year-old girl after the pair crossed paths in a parking lot near Olive Blvd and Highway 141. He offered to buy her a Juul vaping device in exchange for oral sex, police say.

On Nov. 3, Simmons and the teen allegedly had sex, according to authorities. 

After receiving information about the encounter from the teen, detectives sent text messages to Simmons, posing as the teen, asking to meet-up. 

Once Simmons arrived at the location, he was taken into custody.

Simmons is currently being held on a $30,000 cash bond. 

The Chesterfield Police Department is asking anyone else with information to contact them at 636-537-3000.
