Baristas have years of ties to prostitution

EVERETT (WA)-- Two baristas busted during Tuesday's raids have for years been tied to prostitution operations in Snohomish County.

Sheriff's Sgt. Darrell O'Neill also was caught up in Tuesday's coffee stand takedown. The veteran cop reportedly tipped off baristas to ongoing undercover police investigations. Court documents say O'Neill was given sexual favors in exchange for his help.

O'Neill, 58, was booked into the Snohomish County Jail early Wednesday for investigation of promoting prostitution and official misconduct. He bailed out just a couple of hours before he was expected to make an appearance in Everett District Court.

The stands' owner, Carmela Panico, also bailed out of jail by Tuesday evening.

...

Her bankers told police that the money often had a foul smell, and that Panico told them it was because "she maintained these denominations in her freezer at home with fish."

Panico opened the Java Juggs business in 2008. Detectives say before she went into the coffee business she was connected to Talents West, a sex-oriented entertainment business that for years was operated by the Seattle-based Colacurcio crime family.
