Manchester woman arrested again on prostitution charge
MANCHESTER — A woman accused of prostitution in June is facing the same charge again after police said she agreed Wednesday to perform a sex act on an officer working undercover.
Jessica Wheeler, 30, of 150 Spruce St., was arrested about 8 p.m. Wednesday at Central and Union streets. An undercover officer approached her after observing her “acting suspiciously,” police said in a news release.
Wheeler allegedly agreed to perform a sex act on the officer in exchange for money. When officers identified themselves and informed her she was under arrest, police said Wheeler began searching through her purse despite being told to stop.
Wheeler allegedly struggled with police who had to pull her hands away from her purse to handcuff her.
Police said they found syringes and other drug paraphernalia inside the purse and recovered a glass pipe containing cocaine residue hidden in her clothing.
Wheeler is charged with prostitution, resisting arrest and violating bail conditions set when she was arrested June 26 on the other prostitution charge.
