Three women were arrested in a prostitution sting at three suburban spas and massage parlors this week, authorities said.
The undercover operations took place on Monday and Wednesday, the Crystal Lake Police Department said in a statement.
Officers posed as customers at three businesses in Crystal Lake: JJ's Massage, located at 5899 Northwest Highway; Crystal's Spa, located at 386 W. Virginia St.; and Infinity Day Spa, located at 435 Angela Ln.
During the investigation, police said three employees of the various spas attempted to engage in sex acts with the undercover officers in exchange for payment.
Qianyu Warren, 32, of Woodstock, was arrested at Crystal Spa, while 53-year-old Changjuan He, of San Gabriel, California, was arrested at JJ’s Massage, and 60-year-old Soon D. Kim, of Flushing, New York, was taken into custody at Infinity Day Spa.
All three women were each charged with one misdemeanor count of prostitution, officials said.
They were also found to not have a valid Illinois massage license, police said, and were cited for violations of additional city ordinances related to business permitting. An investigation into several building code violations remained ongoing with city officials, according to police.
Authorities said no evidence of human trafficking was discovering in the investigation.
Each woman posted their 10% bond of $1,500 and were released from custody, according to police. They were scheduled to appear in court again on July 2.
