Police: man loaned his truck to prostitute, lied about misuse

Handcuffs

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WIVB) – An Orchard Park man is accused of letting a prostitute borrow his pickup truck and then claiming it had been used without his permission after she was involved in an accident.

The charges against Kevin Elniski developed after he reportedly told police that his pickup truck had been used without his permission. But investigators say they learned the 48-year-old had loaned the vehicle to a prostitute that he had solicited for sex.

The prostitute had been involved in a hit and run accident in Cheektowaga and police say Elniski was fully aware his vehicle had been involved in the accident at the time he made his report.

Elniski was arrested late Saturday night and charged with falsely reporting an incident and third degree patronizing a prostitute.

He was released after posting $200 bail and is due back in court next month.
