SECAUCUS AND BEYOND - We can safely assume that the patrons and owners of the Garden Health Spa are not regular readers of this web site. Just two weeks after we reported that two women were arrested on alleged prostitution charges at the massage business on Paterson Plank Road, three new arrests have been made at the same establishment, police said.
A spokesman for the Secaucus Police Department said Monday that details of the arrests will be made public on Tuesday, Dec. 21.
The arrests are the latest in a string of prostitution busts that have been made in Secaucus recently.
On Dec. 2, two women, Piao Yihua, 27, and Li Meishan, 37, were arrested by Secaucus Police at the Garden Health Spa in an undercover sting operation, according to the police. Meishan, of Flushing, New York, was charged with promoting prostitution, while Yihua, also of Flushing, was charged with engaging in prostitution.
And just last month, Secaucus Police, working in conjunction with two other law enforcement agencies, arrested five women and a man at a different business for crimes ranging from prostitution to promoting prostitution and hindering arrest. Police have declined to give more details on that particular bust, stating that releasing more information could hinder an ongoing investigation. - E. Assata Wright
