GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — A man in Gainesville went to the police after getting robbed by a woman he intended to pay for sex, but refused when she flashed a smile full of bad teeth.
Lake Butler resident Dan Alford told investigators he and 25-year-old Jennifer Elder were negotiating a price until he noticed her dental problems. Alford told police that after he resisted, she snatched a checkbook containing $78 from his shirt pocket and fled.
Elder told authorities she merely got scared and ran, not knowing the man had tucked a wad of cash into her bra.
She was arrested on a robbery charge. Gainesville police did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment on whether the man faced any charges.
