Heather L. Coffee, 32, remains in jail on charges of public indecency, loitering to engage in solicitation and possessing a drug abuse instrument.

Dayton police found the duo engaged in a public sex act inside a vehicle in the area of Ostrander Drive and Pollock Road.

An undercover Dayton officer had observed Coffee get into a vehicle registered to Cox while parked at Sam’s Market. The two then drove to the Pollock Road area and parked in front of homes.

Heavy rain could cause minor flooding this week

“The registered owner James Cox ... has history of picking up prostitutes,” the Dayton police report reads.

Police shined their lights into the car and the woman’s head reportedly popped up from below.

“Cox was leaned back in the driver's seat. He began moving his upper body in what appeared to be fixing his pants,” the officer wrote in his report.

While being booked into jail, officers allegedly found a needle in Coffee’s boot, according to police.
