Canandaigua Police announce another arrest in undercover sex sting

CANANDAIGUA, N.Y. (WHEC) — The Canandaigua Police Department announced another arrest as part of its undercover sex sting operation Wednesday.

This is at least the sixth arrest made as part of the program.

Police say 47-year-old Dana Taylor of Canandaigua was arrested Tuesday and charged with second degree attempted criminal sex act.

Like the other arrests made in the Canandaigua Police Department’s sex sting operation, a detective posed as a 14-year-old online.

Police say Taylor attempted to meet the child for sex and was instead arrested.

Taylor was released on an appearance ticket and is due back in Canandaigua City Court on Aug. 11.

Police say further charges against Taylor are pending.

The same sex sting operation led to the arrest of Karel Ambroz, 57, a Walworth Town Board member, who resigned from his position on the town board and in the Walworth Fire Department soon after news of his arrest broke.

It has also led to the arrest of David Kepner, 61, Josh Maslyn, 38, Jeremy Worthington, 34, and Frank Garofolo, 56.
