NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, Texas (KTRE) - Nacogdoches County deputies arrested a Nacogdoches man early Monday after they say he admitted to taking a woman's laptop computer as a refund to money he paid her earlier for sex.

Carlos Ramirez, 25, is charged with burglary, a second-degree felony, and prostitution, a class B misdemeanor.

According to the complaint report, deputies were dispatched to County Road 6101 in reference to a burglary. When they arrived, a woman told them Ramirez stole a laptop from her residence while she was next door.

Deputies interviewed Ramirez, who reportedly told them he had paid the woman for sex and wanted some of the money back. According to the complaint, Ramirez said she refused to return any money, so he took the laptop, thinking she would be persuaded to return some of the money.

Sheriff Thomas Kerss explained that Ramirez said he paid the woman by the month, and did not feel she gave him what he wanted enough times.

Deputies arrested Ramirez on the burglary and prostitution charges, in addition to two municipal warrants.

According to the Texas Penal Code, a person commits prostitution if they pay or receive a fee for sex.

Kerss said his office is investigating prostitute charges on the woman.

"Those cases are hard to prove, but we're looking into his allegations," he said.
