Eleven Arrested in Prostitution Sting


WINCHESTER, Va. – Eleven people have been arrested as a result of a Winchester Police Department (WPD) undercover prostitution sting that took place on April 18th. “Our message is: get it out of Winchester,” said Lauren Cummings, a spokesperson for WPD. “That kind of criminal activity is not welcome here.”

The following men were arrested for allegedly soliciting a prostitute:

·         Hassan Bah, 19, of Stephens City

·         Charles Bowling, Jr., 31, of Stephens City

·         David Cafini, 43, of Warrenton

·         Gilmer Estrada-Alvarado, 30, of Greenbelt, MD

·         Kyle McDaniel, 44, of Stephens City

·         Rogelio Meza, 24, of Front Royal

·         Gildardo Morales-Peralta, 24, of Winchester

·         Scott Naylor, 36, of Winchester

·         Teddy Newman, 54, of Hedgesville, WV

·         Russell Partlow, III, 34, of Front Royal

·          Jose Suazo, 38, of Harrisonburg

According to Cummings, the arrests happened between 3:00pm and 11:30pm at a hotel inside Winchester’s city limits, but the exact location is not being released. A number of nearby agencies also assisted with the undercover operation.

“There were a number of people who called looking for these services during the time that the operation was happening,” said Cummings, although not all of them showed up to their appointment.

Cummings said the operation was not necessarily in response to an increase in prostitution activity in Winchester. However, the police department has made more prostitution arrests of late, because they doing more of these type of undercover investigations.
