Milford Police cast a crime net via an online classified ad that ensnared several area men in the department's latest undercover prostitution sting.

According to Milford Police Officer Jeffrey Nielsen, classified advertising websites are frequently used by "prostitution enterprises to conduct illegal activities with their clients."

"Based on these types of activities and complaints received by this department, the Milford Police Department Narcotics & Vice Unit recently conducted an undercover operation to address these issues," Nielsen stated in a press release.

Undercover Operation

And so, Milford Police — along with the assistance of Stratford Police — conducted an undercover operation Feb. 20 targeting prostitution in Milford, which involved a classified ad placed on the internet.

"The arrestees met with undercover detectives and offered them money in exchange for sexual activities," Nielsen stated.

'Patronizing a Prostitute'

As a result of the operation, each of the suspects listed below were arrested and charged with patronizing a prostitute:

  • Kevin Gonzalez, 21, Center Street in West Haven
  • Steve Dudas, 58, New Jersey Avenue in Fleming, N.J.
  • Stuart Allen, 50, Hall Road in Easton
  • Michael Genovese, 44, Roger Avenue in North Haven
  • George Giosmas, 57, Willard Road in Shelton
  • Roland Bakhos, 32, of Rennell Street in Bridgeport
  • Ronald Osach, 65, of Richard Sweet Drive in Woodbridge
All of the suspects were released on a promise to appear in Milford Superior Court March 18.

Fact: Majority of the girls are victims of abuse by the "Johns"...Many of the girls are forced into this life..and are systematically abused by their pimps and "johns". It is not a waste of money...Maybe these "Johns" should get a dam life.

Jason, you must have a dominant Jewish mother? Only a FOOL would believe such ABSURD NONSENSE, such as your feminist diatribe, that most prostitutes are somehow forced into exploiting a MANS needs, and making MEN pay. Just one precursor look at the way wo=MEN dress, is evidence they don't need any coercion to become prostitutes. Blame equality! How come wo=MEN don't pay MEN for sex? It is because the wo=MAN holds the ball in this court. People who see prostitutes as victims, are usually left wing Jews who feel sorry for shabby wo=MEN, or pandering politicians.
