One woman was arrested on a warrant charging her with prostitution today; a second woman is wanted on a warrant for the same charge. Both women are accused of offering to perform sexual acts during the course of a massage for monetary recompense.
Detectives with the Sheriff’s Special Investigations Unit received a tip in June that prostitution related activities were taking place at a business in Islamorada called Oriental Massage. Their investigation into those activities confirmed the illegal activity was taking place.
On July 20th, a search warrant related to the prostitution activity was served at the business. At that time, 44 year old Guihua Chen and 35 year old Hong Gao were arrested for not having a license to practice massage.
Subsequently, warrants were issued for Chen and for 51 year old Yumei Han. Both women are accused of offering to perform sexual favors in exchange for cash during the course of massage sessions. Chen was arrested today. Han is still at large.
