MANATEE CO., Fla. (WWSB) -- A homeless Florida woman was arrested Tuesday after offering sexual favors to an undercover deputy in exchange for $25 and chicken McNuggets.

According to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office, the deputy involved was working undercover in an attempt to solicit prostitution or purchase illegal narcotics.

The deputy was in his car at a gas station in Bradenton when he began talking to two women. The suspect, Alex Direeno, 22, reportedly told the other woman the deputy was her boyfriend and got in his car.

Direeno and the undercover deputy then began negotiating a price for Direeno to perform sexual acts on him.

The two agreed Direeno would perform oral sex in exchange for $25 and chicken McNuggets from McDonald's, according to the police report.

The deputy then drove to a location where other deputies with the Manatee County Special Investigative Division were waiting to take Direeno into custody.

When deputies searched Direeno's purse they found two hypodermic needles, several small plastic bags, a spoon and a burnt glass pipe. All the items are instruments of narcotics use; specifically heroin and crack cocaine consumption.

Direeno was charged for prostitution and is in jail.
