34-year-old Ali Razavi was taken into custody last Tuesday around 4:40 p.m.
According to court records, Razavi responded to a faux prostitution add posted to Backpage.com by undercover officers with the Oklahoma City Police Department's Vice Unit.
Razavi was instructed to come to room #103 at the Biltmore Hotel, near I-40 and S. Meridian Ave.

Razavi was then placed under arrest and transported to the Oklahoma County Jail.
While being interviewed and processed, it was revealed that Razavi was currently emplyed as a police dispatcher with the city of Yukon.
Yukon's Police Chief, John Corn, sent the following statement to KFOR NewsChannel 4:
It has been reported that Razavi is now no longer employed by the City of Yukon.
Razavi's attorney also reportedly provided a statement to KFOR NewsChannel 4:
