Two recent prostitution stings in the Hudson Valley led to 14 charged.

In late June, the City of Middletown Police Department Narcotics Unit, along with the New York State Police, Homeland Security Investigations and FBI Safe Streets Task Force, conducted a specialized enforcement detail targeting street level narcotics and prostitution-related offenses.

Five women were charged with prostitution, one man was charged with patronizing a person for prostitution while another man was arrested for criminal sale of a controlled substance and criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Around the same time, the City of Newburgh Police Department, Orange County Drug Task Force and New York State Police – Troop F, Community Narcotics Enforcement Team conducted their own prostitution sting in the City of Newburgh.

Undercover officers were used during the sting, which led to the arrest of seven people. Four women were accused of prostitution while three men allegedly patronized a prostitute.
