NEW WINDSOR – Armed with five search warrants, police raided rooms at the Windsor Motel and Galaxy Motor Inn in New Windsor on Wednesday following a two-month investigation into complaints of illegal narcotics use and prostitution at both locations.
Three women were arrested for prostitution, two of whom were also charged with misdemeanor drug offenses. A man was arrested and charged with felony drug sales and felony drug possession.
The managers of both motels were also charged with permitting prostitution.
