After receiving multiple tips that a female masseuse was illegally prostituting herself through her job at the Asian Spa Massage Parlor at 1275 Woodside Road in unincorporated Redwood City, deputies from the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office conducted an undercover sting operation Tuesday, resulting in her arrest.
According to a statement sent out by Sheriff's public information officer Det. Rebecca Rosenblatt on Thursday, when an undercover deputy patronized the massage parlor during the sting, the masseuse solicited the undercover deputy for a sexual act.
The masseuse, identified as 36-year-old Mei Cheng of Richmond, was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and prostitution.
In addition to the prostitution, there were several other San Mateo County Ordinance Business Code/Massage Parlor violations occurring at the location as well. Due to the violations, the business was closed down for the remainder of the day.
Rosenblatt reports that detectives from the Sheriff’s Office are in the process of having the massage parlor’s business license revoked.
