At one Taco Bell location in Fort Lauderdale, it appears some customers received a little more than just a chalupa.
On Saturday, June 19th, a sting operation was formed in the parking lot of a Florida Taco Bell where customers were offered various sexual favors in an attempt for police to combat street-level prostitution.
Yelper Dave M. left an obscure comment on the Taco Bell’s Yelp page, making it clear that there might be more going on in the restaurant than deep frying tortillas.
The operation involved one of the undercover detectives posing as a prostitute. The Broward Palm Beach reports that two men slowed down by the Taco Bell to ask if the detectives would offer them any action. Instead, the detective arrested the men, and the police were able to shut down the prostitution ring. According to the news source,
According to Fort Lauderdale police spokesperson Tracy Figone, “Street prostitution is not a serious issue in Fort Lauderdale. Proactive prostitution operations are conducted to prevent street prostitution from becoming an issue and to prevent more serious crimes.”
When Taco Bell employees were asked about the operation, they said they had never seen a prostitute in the parking lot before, and that “they were too busy taking orders to notice.”
