Police sting snags alleged prostitute

Amber N. Farley, 29, was arrested and charged with prostitution after a successful sting operation by Oswego Police.

With help from private citizens, the Anti-Crime Team was made aware of possible criminal activity at Farley’s residence. Lots of foot traffic in brief periods of time was an indicator.

Further investigation led to the formation of a sting operation. During the operation, Farley reportedly sold crack cocaine to an undercover police officer. She allegedly offered to engage in sexual acts with the same officer for money and while at the location, police found a purse that was reported stolen.

Farley was remanded to the Oswego County Correctional Facility. She had a scheduled court appearance on Feb. 14 at 9:30 a.m.
