A woman pleaded no contest last week to prostitution charges, accused of agreeing to be paid for services with a box of chips by a man who said he was a Frito-Lay employee.
Lahoma Sue Smith, 36, was ordered to pay a fine of $1,142 in municipal court from charges from a February arrest.
According to the police report, undercover officers noticed Smith "trying to catch a date” by flashing her headlights at SE 33 and Robinson. Officers said they followed Smith’s car and found her with her blouse open and found a man in the passenger seat pulling his pants up.
The man told police he was having marital problems and knew he could pick up a prostitute there.
Smith told police the man told her he was looking for company but he didn’t have any money, so she agreed to be paid with a $30 case of Frito-Lay chips he had in the back of his car.
When asked if she had ever been arrested for prostitution, Smith told police "Yes. Two or three times,” authorities said.
Smith was arrested on complaints of prostitution and suspicion of driving with a suspended license. The man was not arrested.
A police spokesman said the man was not arrested based on "officer discretion."
