A Redondo Beach woman is in custody today after being arrested by Torrance Police detectives under the suspicion of soliciting undercover officers for sex.
The arrest was part of a two-month investigation into several spa and massage businesses throughout the city of Torrance, officials said.
Meishan Jin, 57, was arrested Thursday, along with Ewon Ford, 58 of Yorba Linda, at the Iyu Healing Center at 24211 Hawthorne Blvd., according to a press release prepared by Sgt. Robert Watt.
Detectives “were able to link both with engaging in the act of prostitution,” Watt wrote.
A third person, Shu Wang, 49 years of San Gabriel, was taken into custody without incident at the Shanya Massage, 1730 Sepulveda Blvd., suspected of engaging in prostitution, Watt said.
“These arrests come on the heels of previous arrests on May 1, 2014, when Torrance detectives received a tip from a concerned citizen that possible illegal activity was going on inside Foot Expertz, 2150 Redondo Beach Blvd.,” Watt said.
Any person with additional information on this investigation is encouraged to contact the Torrance Police Department at (310) 328-3456.
