Police in Mesa, Arizona arrested a woman over the weekend for allegedly stealing a car from a man, who she claimed gave it to her in exchange for sex.

Officers said they checked the registration on a gray Nissan Sentra registration around 10am on Sunday, which they found to be reported stolen. When officers searched the vehicle, they found 44-year-old Diana Lee Baker inside.

When questioned why she had stolen the vehicle, Baker told officers that a few days before she had met a man she only knew as "Robert." She told them that Robert owned the car, and gave it to her after she had sex with him. The person who owned the car told police he didn't know Baker, and never gave her permission to use his vehicle.

While further searching the vehicle, officers found pieces of a plastic straw that was melted on one side, foil, and a residue that proved it was used to smoke fentanyl as well as other drugs.

Baker is facing charges of theft and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
