RAMSEY — The Ion Spa owner, Shunfu Jin, was arrested Friday night for owning, controlling and managing a house of prostitution.
Ion Spa is located at 875 Route 17 South in the Lincoln Plaza shopping center.
Nj.com reports that an undercover sting at the spa led to the arrests of its owner and a massage therapist on prostitution charges. The masseuse, Shounan Piao, 47, solicited an undercover officer posing as a client during a visit to the spa.
Jin, 44, and Piao were arrested immediately. Piao and another therapist, Yingua Zhao, were issued summonses. Zhao was unlicensed, according to cliffviewpilot.com.
The arrests came after an almost year-long investigation and complaints about prostitution at the Lincoln Plaza business.
