Buffalo Police execute prostitution sting

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Buffalo Police says they will again soon be posting pictures of “Johns” arrested for soliciting prostitutes.

A female undercover detective was on a west Side street corner for fifteen minutes Thursday when she was solicited by a man looking to pay for sex.

The undercover video shared with News 4 shows a quick response by an eight member vice-narcotics back up unit that made the arrest. The subject was apprehended just after agreeing to pay ten dollars for oral sex.

The police decoy was equipped with a camera and microphone.

Buffalo Police are hoping that would-be “Johns” will get the message.

“Johns should be aware that if you’re out there and you’re looking for prostitutes, you may be arrested,” said Buffalo Police Commissioner Daniel Derenda. “If we arrest you we’re going to post your picture on the website for the world to see.”
