HuffingtonPost 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.
Florida cops were conducting a prostitution sting, so they put a Beanie Baby in the rear window of the undercover police vehicle, to make the car seem more like a family vehicle and less like a potential undercover. However the Beanie Baby which was supposed to throw hookers off the scent caught the eye of 51-year-old Karen Robinson, who offered the undercover cop a blowjob, in exchange for the Beanie Baby and $5. Not only did the Beanie Baby throw Karen Robinson off the scent of a potential cop, it turned out to be additional bait, which she took and got her caught in a prostitution sting. We know some people collect Beanie Babies, and certain Beanie Babies can sell for almost three grand, but we have a feeling the Beanie Baby in the rear window of this undercover Florida cop car was picked up at a gas station and not worth three thousand dollars. If Karen Robinson spotted a rare Beanie Baby in the rear window of this car and was trying to get rich quick off of an uninformed Beanie Baby owner, you cannot blame her for offering.
