A resident of The Villages has been arrested in an undercover prostitution case.
Melissa Jayne Berg, 44, who lives in the village of Bonnybrook, was arrested by the Unified Drug Enforcement Team on Tuesday after listing her services on Ocala Skip the Games, a “website for people who solicit sex in exchange for money”. according to an arrest report. A meeting has been set at Walmart at 2600 W. 19th Ave. in Ocala. Berg climbed into the front passenger seat of the undercover officer’s vehicle. She verbally agreed to sex, including oral sex, in exchange for $100 cash. They drove to Scott Springs Park where other officers arrested Berg, who was arrested for prostitution. She was booked into Marion County Jail.
Berg is no stranger to the Tri-County Area’s legal system, having been arrested in March 2019 when she was found driving a vehicle with a stolen license plate from Wal-Mart in Buffalo Ridge Plaza in The Villages. At the time, she was arrested for theft, possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Berg was also arrested in February 2019 after being caught with methamphetamine in her bra. She was taken into custody during a traffic stop after a K-9 unit alerted her vehicle during a traffic stop.
