ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) —  Authorities say a mall security guard at Westfield Wheaton Mall in Maryland has acknowledged running a prostitution business and trying to recruit girls while on the job.

According to documents filed in federal court in Virginia, Cooper Kweme of Arlington acknowledged to authorities he has been a manager of girls for prostitution and drove girls to appointments to have sex since October 2010.

Kweme was arrested after a 16-year-old Arlington girl told police she had slept with Kweme several times and also had sex with eight other men who were Kweme’s clients. He is charged with transporting the girl, a minor, to engage in prostitution.
