PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The Oregon State Police say one of their detectives has been suspended without pay after he was found with a prostitute while on duty.

The police said in a statement that Clackamas County sheriff’s deputies cited the detective Tuesday afternoon after getting a report about a man and woman engaged in a sex act near SE 82nd Avenue and SE Johnson Creek Boulevard.

He was identified as 50-year-old Richard Narvaez, assigned to the police’s Tribal Gaming Section in Salem. He was accused of patronizing a prostitute and public indecency. He has worked for the State Police for 23 years.

The woman was identified as 32-year-old Tiffany Denise Smith. She was arrested on probation violation warrants and accused of public indecency and prostitution.
