A Southwest Ocala woman was arrested Monday, Oct. 12, and charged with prostitution after the Marion County Sheriff’s Office used a confidential source to make an appointment.

Kimberly Rose, 41, of 6721 S.W. 88th St., was arrested at 11 a.m. Monday after a confidential source was used to make an appointment that involved payment of $250 for sex.

According to a news release, when the source arrived at Rose’s home for the “appointment,” he paid the suspect the $4250 and agents entered the home and arrested Rose for prostitution.

She bonded out of jail at 5 p.m. Monday under a bond of $500.


For the third week in a row, there was an arrest in the area of an alleged drunk driver with a child in the vehicle.

Michael A. Negron, 46, of 5001 S.W. 20th St., was spotted driving on State Road 40 by a deputy who was transporting another person to the county jail. He contacted deputy Joseph Tussey, who was assisting another motorist on the same road. Tussey saw the vehicle, and according to his report saw the Dodge Caravan swerving and occasionally touching the yellow and white lines. The traffic stop was conducted in a convenience store parking lot at Southwest 60th Avenue and West State Road 40.

According to the report, he failed the field sobriety tests and was taken to the jail, where he refused to provide a breath sample and refused to sign the implied consent form.

In the car with the suspect at the 10 p.m. incident was a 12-year-old boy, who was picked up by a relative.
