Anti-hooker operation tallies five arrests

kt logoA Friday, May 29 undercover sting with cops posing as johns and using websites such as the infamous hooker-hookup site backpage.com resulted in four prostitution arrests – all of out-of-towners – and a man getting busted for pot, the Kingston Police Department and the Town of Ulster Police Department said.

According to police, the KPD’s Special Investigations Unit and the Ulster town police conducted the undercover detail targeting pay-for-play activity at local motels.

Arrested after, police allege, offering to perform sex acts for money were: Desirae M. Williams, 30, of Hyde Park; Dawn M. Busanet, 35, of Poughkeepsie; Kyla D. Blevins, 23, of Newburgh; and Christina L. Dayton, 33, of Marlboro. All four were charged with prostitution, a misdemeanor. Also arrested was a Washingtonville man, who was a friend of one of the suspects. Police, who labeled him a “suspicious male,” was found to have a small amount of weed on him and thus was charged with the violation of unlawful possession of marijuana.
