Names, including two from Lakewood, released of men facing prostitution charges in Wall, NJ 

Fifteen men were charged with prostitution offenses after State Police assisted members of the Wall police with an undercover operation at a local motel during the first week of April, said Police Chief Robert L. Brice.

The arrested men were charged with varying offenses related to loitering for the purpose of engaging in prostitution and soliciting prostitution. They ranged in age between the ages of 20 to 61.

“The investigation remains active,” Brice said. Authorities released 14 of the 15 names and would not provide the motel name, except to say it is located on the Route 35 corridor. The 15th name was withheld because of an unrelated investigation, police said.

Arrested in the sting:

• • Charged with soliciting prostitution and loitering for the purpose of engaging in prostitution were Edward R. Parise, 45, of Wall; Gerald A. Barrett, 44, of Berkeley; Gregory R. Arnold, 61, of Eatontown; Gordie Greening III, 45, of Wall; and Christopher K. Schroll, 46, of Middletown.

• Anthony L. Ceres, 35, of Asbury Park is charged with loitering for the purpose of engaging in prostitution. Ceres is a twice-convicted sexual offender. In 2004, he was convicted in federal court with distributing child pornography over the Internet and in 2005 for engaging in sexual relations with a 15-year-old girl in Monmouth County.

• Charged with prostitution and loitering for the purpose of engaging in prostitution are Avrahom C. Joseph, 38, of Lakewood; Binyomin Y. Rabinowitz, 42, of Lakewood; Dwight M. Brown, 50, of Neptune; Amando Garcia Herrera, 29, of Neptune; John A. Roses, 37, of Toms River; Steven A. Siejkowski, 34, of Hazlet; Hiren Patel, 31, of Piscataway; and Tyler J. Stephens, 20, of Stafford.

The men were all released on summonses after being processed, police said.

In February, police did random inspections of local hotels and motels to make sure each adhered to township ordinances regulating the keeping of a registry and the minimum and maximum length of stay for guests.

The random checks will continue, Brice said. The surveys are part of the township’s “quality of life” details to make it more difficult for those who engage in criminal activity to operate out of any of the motels, Brice said.

Anyone with any information about criminal activity at local motels is urged to contact Detective Sgt. Joseph Wilbert of the Wall police at 732-449-4500 or jwilbert@wallpolice.org.

The Asbury Park Press asked police for photos of the suspects, but they refused. State law allows authorities discretion in releasing suspect photos, but they often refuse to do so, saying they are prohibited by the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office.
