NEWBURGH – A prostitution sting in the City of Newburgh has netted five women charged with prostitution and seven men charged with patronizing a prostitute.
The arrests were conducted by the Orange County Drug Task Force and City of Newburgh Police.
Arrested for prostitution were Carrie Conklin-Williams, 32; Matilda Garrison, 49; Amanda Anderson, 31; Luz Wilson-Colon, 29; and Lindsay Robles, 24, all of the City of Newburgh. They were all released on their own recognizance pending future court appearances.

During the course of the investigations, Samuel Clark, IV, 29, of Newburgh, was charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana; and Timaya Hayes-El, 20, of Newburgh, was charged on a bench warrant with failure to appear in Orange County Court.
District Attorney David Hoovler said the operation was in response to community complaints. “As my office responds to these quality of life crimes, we are also investigating whether there is a human trafficking component to these crimes,” the DA said.
