NJ Dunkin' Donuts Prostitute: Employee Sold Sex in Parking Lot

After the Dunkin' Donuts robbers and the Dunkin' Donuts snot, you knew this was coming:

A Dunkin' Donuts prostitute.

Police in Rockaway, New Jersey have arrested Melissa Redmond, a night-shift employee, for offering up her own sexual services along with coffee and donuts.

They cheekily called the sting operation "Extra Sugar."

Launched by an anonymous tip, the six-week investigation had Rockaway police staking out the Dunkin' Donuts on Route 46, reports the Daily Record. Open 24 hours, Melissa Redmond worked the overnight shift.

During that time, she would strike up conversations with customers, eventually offering them a list of services at prices in the range of $50 to $100.

She would then turn tricks in the parking lot during her 10 minute breaks, though sometimes the client would drive her to a nearby location.

Even worse, Redmond was apparently so pressed for time, WABC-TV reports that police repeatedly observed her wearing her uniform and apron during these parking lot liaisons.

While this likely broke some health codes, there really isn't anything health officials can do about it given that Redmond has been picked up for prostitution and is no longer employed by Dunkin' Donuts.

So instead of focusing on her poor donut customers, let's focus on Redmond's extra sugar customers. What's going to happen to them?

There's been no word of how Rockaway police are handling the men who they witnessed pay for her sexual services, but there may be enough evidence (license plates, photographs) to show that they paid for sex.

Even though paying for sex, or solicitation, is illegal, it's unlikely that prosecutors will go after them now that they have arrested Melissa Redmond. Their focus was clearly on catching the Dunkin' Donuts prostitute, not her customers.
