WHEATON, Ill. (STMW) – For Naperville masseuse Alecia S. M. Lonsdale, your garden-variety client simply wouldn’t do. Lonsdale made it clear she was interested only in “upscale, polite gentlemen,” according to a written Naperville police report.
An unnamed, undercover police officer might or might not have fit that bill, but he apparently amassed enough evidence to arrest Lonsdale last week on a misdemeanor charge of prostitution.
Lonsdale, 37, lives on the 800 block of Corday Drive, in the Amli at Naperville apartment complex in the far west-central part of the city. She was arrested about 8:10 p.m. Wednesday in her home, after allegedly offering to perform a sex act for money, police Sgt. Gregg Bell said.
Members of the police department’s special operations group began investigating Lonsdale after discovering information she allegedly posted on a social networking website, Bell said. The posting allegedly indicated Lonsdale was offering her services as a masseuse, he said.
Lonsdale reportedly advertised her home as being located just off Ogden Avenue and not far from the Westfield Fox Valley shopping center. Bell said she allegedly mentioned being “discreet,” and that she was “looking for upscale, polite gentlemen only.”
In addition to prostitution, Lonsdale was charged with violating the massage licensing act, according to records on file in DuPage County Circuit Court. She apparently has no criminal record in DuPage County or Will County, court documents indicated.
Lonsdale is free on $1,500 bond. Her arraignment date is pending.
