JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Five women ranging in age from 31 to 48 were arrested Thursday on prostitution charges during a citywide sting, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said.

In four cases, the women offered to perform a sex act on an undercover detective in exchange for money, according to police reports. 

Two of the women are also facing charges of use or possession of drug paraphernalia.

The fifth woman arrested, Buffy Suzanne Bryan, told a detective posing as a customer that she would perform oral sex in exchange for two soft shell tacos -- totaling $2.14 -- from Taco Bell, her arrest report said.
