Woman Charged With Prostitution at Hillsborough Massage Parlor
Investigation followed citizens complaints about an acupuncture and massage parlor.
A 37-year-old Staten Island woman was charged Tuesday with engaging in prostitution at a Hillsborough massage and acupuncture parlor, according to a release from the Somerset County Prosecutor's Office.
According to Somerset County Prosecutor Geoffrey Soriano, an undercover detective with the Somerset County Prosecutor's Office Organized Crime and Narcotics Taskforce entered the L and B Acupuncture and Massage Therapy, at 390 Amwell Road, Tuesday at about 2 p.m.
Once inside the business, Hui Ling Liu approached the detective and, during the meeting, allegedly propositioned a sexual act in exchange for money, Soriano said.
Additional detectives from the task force and from the Hillsborough Township Police Department then entered the business and arrested Liu, Soriano said.
She was released on her own recognizance following processing and is scheduled to appear in Hillsborough Municipal Court.
The quality of life investigation, conducted by the Somerset Prosecutor's Office Organized Crime and Narcotics Task Force, followed several complaints by concerned township citizens, according to the prosecutor's office.
