Yet another “John” allegedly showed up at a 66-year-old’s house looking for sex on Sunday, but it looks like all he may have gotten was a potential attempted burglary charge.

It had been a while since Elaine White, a resident of Plano, had gotten an unwelcome guest at her home.

A few weeks ago the local news outlet NBC 5 broke a story about this retiree’s strange plight of men from all over North Texas apparently coming to her house in search of sex. The story went viral and was picked up by The Dallas Express, along with other outlets.

As White explained to NBC 5 at the time, online scammers allegedly used her address to trick men looking for sexual services.

According to her, Plano police told her “it’s off of some sex website where nasty old men go and look for sex. They pay Venmo for the services and then they get my address and they come here.”

The steady stream of Johns left White feeling frustrated.

“How can a grown man go to a house in a neighborhood, thinking they’re gonna get sex?” White asked NBC 5. “As many hookers and prostitutes as there are, go get one. Leave me alone. I’m not here for that.”

Luckily, since the story broke and captured public attention, White had finally gotten some peace, NBC 5 reported. Plano police posted signs and installed surveillance cameras nearby, adding to White’s own Ring video doorbell and sign reading, “Kelly does not live here.”

Unfortunately, this peace was short-lived, as a new alleged John showed up at her door on February 19.

In video footage shared with NBC 5, the unidentified man can be seen ringing White’s doorbell and asking for a woman named Rose; he also allegedly tried to open the door to her home.

Plano police came and got the man. While White told NBC 5 that she planned to press charges against him for attempted burglary, Local Profile was reportedly told by police that no charges had been filed yet and an investigation was still underway.

In and around Dallas, sexual offenses have become increasingly prevalent.

Separate busts last month by local and federal authorities resulted in 69 alleged sex solicitors being taken into custody and charged. Of these, 23 came from a Dallas Police Department investigation into the illicit use of short-term rentals in Dallas and Plano by sex traffickers. The remaining 46 were from a U.S. Department of Homeland Security sting in Southlake and McKinney.

Soliciting prostitution is a felony. Texas treats sex solicitors harshly, considering them to be actively contributing to sex trafficking, whose victims include both adults and children.

Recently, Dallas PD, Plano PD, FBI Dallas, and various other organizations arrested 59 people for the apparent sexual exploitation of children online in Operation Janus. A total of 28 children were rescued.
