Seven men arrested in Manchester prostitution sting


MANCHESTER — Seven men were snared Friday in an undercover police operation designed to discourage prostitution in city neighborhoods, police said.

Police said a female police officer, working undercover, plied the area of Beech and Manchester streets. She was approached by a number of vehicles whose occupants would engage the officer in conversation.

Police allege all the men agreed to pay the woman money in exchange for sexual contact. Police said the conversations resulted in the arrests.

They were identified as:

- Lerma Ortiz, 33, of Manchester.

- Daniel Feinberg, 42, of Manchester.

- Rene Ouimette, 48, of Manchester.

- Bruce Lovette, 24, of North Hampton.

- Brian LaPlante, 32, of Manchester.

- Om Basnet, 26, of Manchester.

- Damodhor Dahal, 26, of Manchester.

Police said Basnet and Dahal were inside the same vehicle.

All seven were charged with a prostitution-related crime, a misdemeanor.

Ouimette, a registered sex offender, was held on a probation violation. The other six were released on their own recognizance and are scheduled for court appearances in July and August.
