SEPTEMBER 8--After taking a sex toy from a shelf at a Florida adult novelty store, a woman removed her clothes and began using the “pink colored” device inside the business, police charge.

A Fort Pierce cop was dispatched early Tuesday evening to the Lion's Den Adult Superstore “in reference to a disturbance,” according to an arrest affidavit. En route to the business, a dispatcher noted that “there was a female in the store wearing a purple shirt and had on no pants.”

Before the officer entered Lion's Den, a worker explained that the masturbating suspect had “removed a sex toy from the packaging and was now fully nude.” The woman, the worked added, had disappeared into a stock room with the sex toy.

When he entered the stock room, the officer found Theresa Stanley, 36, “sitting in an office chair with her feet up on the table.” Stanley had a “pink colored, penis shaped sex toy” in her hand and was using the device in a “masturbatory manner.”

Right after the cop appeared, Stanley “stopped making use of the sex toy and dropped it on the ground.”

Pictured above, Stanley was arrested for theft and indecent exposure, both misdemeanors. After being read her rights, Stanley declined to the speak with the officer, whose body-worn camera recorded the bizarre incident.

Stanley was booked into the St. Lucie County jail, where she is being held in lieu of $1500 bond. She is scheduled to be arraigned tomorrow.

Stanley’s rap sheet includes convictions for soliciting prostitution and possession of drug paraphernalia. She was charged earlier this year with grand theft auto, a felony case that is pending. (2 pages)
