Once again Alexis Summers has found herself behind bars. The Pasco County resident, who is legally known as Raymond Bowen, was arrested during a prostitution sting on Friday, June 18.

In all, 11 people were arrested during the eight hour undercover sting by the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office and the New Port Richey police, authorities said. Officers made arrests by posing as customers at intersections in west Pasco.

Bowen, 34, of New Port Richey, was arrested on a felony charge of soliciting prostitution. According to a report from the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office, Bowen entered the vehicle of an undercover officer and offered to perform oral sex for $40. The report also says that Bowen reached into the officer’s pants without consent.

It was unclear whether Bowen was dressed as a woman or a man during the arrest. Officials have charged him with prostitution on three previous occasions—most recently in January of this year. In the report, Bowen is quoted as saying another arrest would not make him stop the practice.

“I’ve been arrested for prostitution before and I’ll be out tomorrow,” Bowen is quoted as saying in the report. “I’ll keep doing it.”

The arresting officer requested that Bowen be held in lieu of the appropriate bond.

This is not the first time Bowen has appeared in Watermark for an arrest. In January 2009, Watermark reported on Bowen’s arrest for criminal mischief and burglary. In that incident Bowen, who was dressed as a woman, jumped into a truck stopped at a red light and began fondling the male driver. He reportedly told that driver that he needed “to make 20 bucks.”

When the driver attempted to call 911, Bowen allegedly took his cell phone, which resulted in the burglary charge.

At press time, Bowen was in the Pasco County Jail.
