WEST NYACK - Six men have been arrested in a West Nyack undercover prostitution sting.

Police say the men were nabbed when authorities posted an advertisement online, offering sex for sale. Within four hours, five of the men from Rockland and one from New Jersey showed up at a motel off Route 303.

Officials say this is the first of many sting operations. "Get the word out that the town of Clarkstown is doing these stings and operations. And if you come into our town and patronize a prostitute, you may get an undercover officer and find yourself arrested," says Clarkstown Police Chief Michael Sullivan.

Sullivan says he expects a 1,000 percent increase in prostitution arrests this year over last year.
