Police used an undercover female officer and a 10-man squad to round up the suspects, accused of patronizing a prostitute, and impound their vehicles, LoHud.com reported. 

The operation was part of an ongoing effort to curb "quality of life" crimes on Mount Vernon's west side, LoHud.com reported.

Interesting to note that the MV Police have the resources and time to entrap people who are allegedly committing a minor offense, but they don't bother to entrap the people who are definitely committing a felony - stealing mail from USPS letter collection boxes throughout the city.
And if the police really want to stop prostitution, they should investigate what's really happening inside Sue's Rendezvous.
