KJR 950 AM morning host Mitch Levy is one of 110 men caught up in an undercover police sting according to a Bellevue WA police report obtained through a public-disclosure request by The Seattle Times.
Levy, 50, was booked into jail Aug. 26 before posting $500 bail, and has since been charged with misdemeanor patronizing a prostitute, according to jail and court records.
According to a pilice report, Levy placed $160 in cash on a bedside table in anticipation of a half-hour of sex, the police. Levy told one of the arresting detectives he had played golf earlier in the day and claimed he had come by for a massage.
But the report notes “there was no other reason for this suspect to come to the condo other than to purchase sex."
Bellevue, Washington police ran an undercover operation, which included opening up a brothel for seven days at a local condominium to attract unsuspecting sex buyers. They posted online ads to entice individuals to come forward, engaged in explicit text messages with potential customers, and when those men showed up, they were arrested.
Over 100 cars, motorcycles and bikes were impounded as a restul of the sting. Among those put behind bars were a large number of technology workers.
iHeart Media KJR officials haven’t yet issued a statement on Levy’s arrest or the station’s plans short-term and long-term for the morning show.
