Wanda, the popular advertising mannequin for Wireless Zone located in Shop Rite Plaza, is facing prostitution charges stemming from her arrest late Saturday night for soliciting an undercover officer, police said.
Detectives indicated they were recently notified of suspicious activity involving Wanda, and upon further investigation, it became clear the mannequin was participating in lewd and lascivious acts in a prostitution arrangement with men, women and couples.
Authorities have yet to determine if Wanda was forced into prostitution or if this was something she willingly engaged in on her own.
The eye-catching life size doll has become prominent locally due to her disarming good looks, and her ability to generate foot traffic for the cell phone company. Wanda proved to be popular with kids and adults alike, but no one was aware of her dark side.
Police officials said that standing on a street corner soliciting is a dangerous business even for a mannequin.
The prostitution charge is only a misdemeanor so she will not be placed on administrative leave, according to reports.
Wanda is expected to be out in front of the store enticing cell phone customers, and not turning tricks for johns today.
