Yesterday, members of the Department’s Vice Squad and IMPACT Team conducted a prostitution initiative in the Hamilton Hill and Vale neighborhoods that targeted customers (“Johns”).

As a result, the following men were arrested for “Patronizing a Prostitute”:

* Charles H. Allen, 46, 1667 Waters Road – Glenville

* Gary R. Felano, 48, 663 Clifton Park Center Road – Clifton Park

* Frazier L. Harry, 38, 26 Jay Street – Schenectady

* Daniel S. Johnson, 41, 2600 Duanesburg Road – Princetown

* Philip W. Kilburn , 57, 275 Smith Road – Amsterdam

* Edmund C. Roberts, 46, 3 Laur-Lin Drive – Burnt Hills

* Charles E. Wilson, 58, 255 Orange Street – Albany

This initiative was part of a continuing effort to combat prostitution activity in the city and improve the quality of life in these neighborhoods.

As you can see, 6 of the 7 men traveled to Schenectady to engage in this activity. The Department’s goal in publicizing their names, addresses and photographs (including posting them on our website at is to discourage other potential prostitution customers.

The Department will continue to aggressively target people who travel to Schenectady to engage in criminal activity.
