A Times Square sting operation ended with the arrest of a woman who was dressed as Elmo yesterday, officials say.
The New York Post reports that 10 officers dressed as tourists took pictures of the woman. The Post adds that 36-year-old Rosa Sanchez then grew irritable after receiving an unsatisfying tip. After being arrested and taken to the Midtown South Precinct, authorities reportedly found roughly $200 on her.
Sanchez faces aggressive solicitation charges, which are far less serious than what got that other Times Square Elmo in trouble last year.
Also, did this really take 10 officers?
