CLINTON TWP. (WWJ) – Authorities say a 45-year-old man who used to be a reserve officer with the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office was arrested after he solicited sex from an undercover detective in exchange for drugs.

Raymond Alfred Selman, of Macomb Township, was arraigned Thursday in the 41B District Court of Clinton Township on charges of using a computer to commit a crime, accosting and soliciting prostitution, and delivery/manufacturing controlled substances less than 50 grams.

According to police, Selman engaged in several online conversations with an undercover officer, during which he suggested that prescriptions drugs be exchanged for a sex act.

The Macomb Area Computer Enforcement Team set up a meeting with Selman around 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday at a prearranged location. When Selman arrived, he was taken into custody. According to police, Selman was in possession of Oxycodone, a prescription narcotic, when he was arrested.

Police say it was only after Selman was in custody that they realized he was a former volunteer reserve officer with the sheriff’s department. Lt. John Michalke told the Detroit Free Press that Selman was discharged from his position in the fall of 2012 because of a performance-related issue.

A judge ordered Selman held on a $15,000 bond in the Macomb County Jail.
