It’s officially time to declare a Dunkin’ Donuts crime wave. First came the report of a DD staffer putting a little something extra in cops’ coffee. Now, it’s an employee who decided to spice up the late-night menu with sex-for-cash in the parking lot.
“She was a night time employee (working 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.), supposedly a very good one,” says the police detective behind the six-week investigation dubbed “extra sugar.”
Acting on an anonymous tip, police initiated surveillance on the Dunkin’ Donuts in question, where the female employee would often leave the eatery and venture out to visit parked cars for around 10 to 15 minutes at a time.
“Sometimes I’d even see money changing hands,” said the detective, who then arranged to send an undercover officer in to order a bear claw if you know what I mean, and I think you do.
“He went in plain clothes through the drive-thru window,” says the detective. “He spoke to her and she said if he wanted a good time to call her and she gave him her phone number.”
The employee met the undercover cop in his car, where she allegedly ran down her list of goods and services and their respective prices. For some reason, that wasn’t good enough to bust her on the spot, so the undercover officer returned to the Dunkin’ Donuts one more time, where she offered him a discount price. After he returned from the ATM, police arrested the woman.
One question: Why did the cop go to the ATM if the Dunkin’ employee was just going to be arrested anyway?
