Jose Mejia-Ulloa, 41, is charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Sunday night, Loudoun County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the 45500 block of East Severn Road for a report of female in a vehicle that approached a boy and attempted to get him into a car. Upon arrival, the teen gave deputies the suspect's description. Later, deputies saw a person matching that description and initiated a traffic stop, during which they discovered the woman driving the vehicle was really a man dressing in female’s clothing.

Mejia-Ulloa is being held on $5,000 bond.
