Jacklyn A. Cleary, 24, of 1742 Maple Ridge Road, later was arrested on an unrelated Norwalk Police Department warrant. She also was charged with driving with a suspended license and an open container violation.

An employee on a cigarette break about 8:50 p.m. reported there was a suspected "lot lizard" who was in an older red Dodge pickup truck which pulled into the employee parking area, police said. The employee said she saw a white car with two females inside pull up and one of the women got into the truck.

Monroeville Police Officer Kurt Jacobs said he interviewed the man in the driver's seat who said he was there to loan Cleary money to put on her prepaid cell phone. Cleary told the officer she had known the man for about a year and "has worked for his business in the past."

Cleary, who has a suspended driver's license, told Jacobs that the car owner let her drive.

Jacobs searched the white Pontiac Grand Am and found an open container of beer belonging to Cleary and "a male and female condom in (her) purse." Officer Jennifer Reineck discovered Cleary was not wearing any undergarments during a search about the same time.

"Due to the inconsistent stories between Jacklyn and (the man), Jacklyn not wearing any lower undergarments and the discovery of the contraceptives in Jacklyn's purse, I have a strong suspicion there may have been prostitution activity afoot," Jacobs wrote in his report.

Police, however, decided not to pursue related charges.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Jacklyn Cleary has not been charged with prostitution. The police report, however, indicates that the police officer who cited Cleary suspected "prostitution activity." Cleary has been solely cited for driving with a suspended license and an open container violation. The Reflector regrets any confusion this article may have caused.
