After receiving complaints regarding local massage businesses involved in prostitution, an undercover sting operation was conducted on three local message businesses. With the use of undercover officers we addressed three businesses in town that were alleged to be engaged in prostitution activities.

At approximately 2pm an undercover officer was sent into Ruby's Massage Therapy located at 14 Maple St. At this business it quickly became evident that services included more than just the standard massage. Zhen Liu (48) was arrested after she agreed to participate in a sex act for money. She was later cited for a prostitution charge.

At approximately 5:30 pm, an undercover officer was sent into Sapphire Massage located at 1960 N. Main St. At this location it similarly became apparent that a standard massage was secondary and that sex for money was the business at hand. Yjng Tang (43) was arrested after she agreed to participate in a sex act for money. She was later cited prostitution.

At approximately 8:30pm. an undercover officer was sent into Heavenly Touch Massage located at 1055 N. Main St. At this location again, it ultimately became evident that along with a message sex was also permitted. Jie Wan (33) was arrested after she agreed for sex for money. She was later cited for prostitution.

The sting  operation resulted in  three arrested at three targeted locations. Code enforcement will get involved as well for business licenses revocation and/or fine
