These guys keep falling for the same “losing proposition.”

Four men looking for a good time on a discount were busted last weekend in the 104th Precinct’s latest prostitution bust in Ridgewood near the Brooklyn/Queens border, police announced on Monday night.

According to authorities, the arrests were made between 8 and 10 p.m. on Friday, April 29, in the vicinity of Cypress Avenue and Starr Street, a known prostitution hotspot for years.

Police said the four men — Henryk Samociuk, 58, of Brooklyn; Tadeusz Zyskowski, 59, of Ridgewood; Ming Ye, 39, of Elmhurst; and Joe Cardenas, 42, of Bay Shore, NY — allegedly offered anywhere from $10 to $50 to undercover officers posing as prostitutes in exchange for various sex acts.

All four were subsequently taken into custody on charges of patronizing a prostitute.

It was the latest “Operation Losing Proposition” sting that the 104th Precinct conducted in the neighborhood. Earlier in the month, cops nabbed four other men for soliciting undercover agents in the area. The NYPD conducts “Losing Proposition” stings in areas across the city known to be hotbeds for illegal sex sales.

What a waste of time. Find the damn pimps, lock them up, and throw away the keys.
