Police say an undercover prostitution sting in Orange County resulted in the arrest of eight alleged Johns.
The men are accused of soliciting sex from a female officer posing as a prostitute Thursday.
Police say two of the suspects are from Middletown while the rest traveled downtown from as far as Sullivan County.

The operation was carried out after authorities received complaints.
The men arrested were charged with patronizing a prostitute. They were released without bail and are due in court later this week.
