      A prostitution sting ends in the arrest of five men and a teenager in Utica.

      Last week, a female police officer posed as a prostitute in areas throughout the city where prostitution is known to happen.

      62-year-old Thomas Ryan, of Butterfield Avenue, is charged with patronizing a prostitute, loitering for the purpose of prostitution and unlawful possession of marijuana.

      26-year-old Kio Gay, of Elm Street, is charged with patronizing a prostitute and loitering for the purpose of prostitution. He also had an outstanding warrant for his arrest for harassment.

      17-year-old, who we are not identifying because of his age, is charged with patronizing a prostitute and loitering for the purpose of prostitution.

      The other three men were charged with violations.
