The Palm Beach Sheriff's Office arrested 17 people Thursday in "an enforcement operation targeting street level prostitution" in the Plantation Mobile Home Park in West Palm Beach, according to a news release.
Support the independent voice of South Florida and help keep the future of New Times free.
The release also included a dissemination log of the arrests, but the spreadsheet was spelled "dissemenation log," which, believe it or not, is only the second-most amusing part of the documentation: Police also included what appears to be documentation of what each suspect allegedly wanted and how much they were going to pay.
The entry for 23-year-old Divendre Hernandez, for example, says "5.00 B.J.," which seems like (sorry) a low-ball offer. Ditto Seneus Mackenson's "20.00 Sex X 2." Twice? How long was he planning on being there?
That offer was allegedly doubled by 32-year-old Rasheem Gordon, who police say was arrested after trying to get the ol' "20.00 Sex" -- while riding his bicycle. He'll probably have an easier time explaining his arrest than 26-year-old Devanand Singh, who got his sister's car towed after allegedly offering $20 for a blowjob.
The most popular offer was $20, though high-rolling 43-year-old Christopher Schwendanmann allegedly offered $75 for "Everything."
Here's the rest of the log, if you're interested:
