Three women, including one from Carmel and one from Poughkeepsie, were busted for offering sex to undercover officers on Friday during a special enforcement detail by the Ulster Regional Gang Enforcement Team.

The arrests took place at the Blue Moon Cabaret on Route 299 in New Paltz when undercover officers from the URGENT team posed as patrons and received offers for sex from three of the six dancers working that evening, police said.

This is the second operation conducted by URGENT into prostitution activity at the club. In September 2016, URGENT members arrested three of five dancers working for prostitution, police added.

Those arrested and charged with prostitution included:

  • HonseySue Miller, 28, of Poughkeepsie
  • Angela Gaugler, 30, of Carmel
  • Jill Tompkins, 47, of West Kill, N.Y.

Gaugler was also arrested during the September operation, police said.

The women were released on appearance tickets.
