Boca spa a front for prostitution police say

BOCA RATON, FL (WFLX) - A Boca Raton spa was a front for prostitution, according to an affidavit filed in Palm Beach County court.

According to the document, police first received a tip about O'Asian Wellness and Spa on January 1, 2012.

The anonymous complaint accused the spa at 2499 Glades Road, Suite 113, of being a massage parlor with an all-male customer base.

Between June 5, 2013 and May 20, 2014, police say, they stopped and interviewed 12 male customers and all but one admitted they either engaged in a sex act with a female employee or were solicited by an employee for a sexual act.

The average massage cost about $70 per hour or $50 per half hour, not including a tip, police noted.

Investigators identified 50-year-old Xiaoqin Li of Sunny Isles Beach as the owner. They have charged her with money laundering, deriving support from the proceeds of prostitution, maintaining a house of prostitution and an offer to commit prostitution.

In addition, police arrested 40-year-old Yan Lin and 54-year-old Exian Zheng. Both were charged with prostitution.
