A Florida woman was arrested last week after she allegedly offered sex in exchange for a Beanie Baby and $5.
St. Petersburg police said 51-year-old Karen Robinson got into an undercover vehicle around near 11 p.m. Wednesday after the driver pulled over on a side street.
The suspect then allegedly negotiated a deal to perform oral sex for $5 and a Beanie Baby teddy bear, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by The Smoking Gun website.
A spokeswoman for the St. Petersburg Police Dept. told HuffPost the Beanie Baby was in the car “to make it look like it was a family vehicle.”
Although some Beanie Babies can sell for up to $2,800, depending on their rarity, the arresting officer did not specify which bear was the subject of the negotiation.
Robinson was arrested on prostitution charges, a misdemeanor in Florida. She denied the crime, according to WFLA-TV.
Jail records show she was released on her own recognizance Thursday afternoon.
