Woman Charged With Prostitution

A Flushing, N.Y., woman was charged with prostitution following an undercover investigation.

The East Brunswick Police Department charged a 39-year-old woman with prostitution last week following an undercover investigation at a local business.

According to police, a member of the department’s Detective Bureau entered an acupuncture sand spa on Cranbury Road on Friday, Feb. 1. During a massage the officer was offered sexual favors for money by the masseuse, who was identified as Chen Jin, 39, of Flushing, N.Y. The investigation was initiated following several tips received by the police department.

Jin was subsequently charged with prostitution before being released on her own recognizance, said police.

“The East Brunswick Police Department Detective Bureau aggressively investigates all illegal activity at local massage parlors and spas by sending in undercover officers posing as clients. All illegal activity is prosecuted to the fullest extent including the customers that are soliciting prostitution,” said the department in a release.

“The East Brunswick Police Department takes anonymous tips seriously and investigates them thoroughly. The Police Department would like to thank those anonymous sources that provided the information that led to this arrest."

I wonder if this manpower would not be better employed towards providing security in our schools.

They are bragging they caught one hooker? Why not go after the drug dealing and gang activity that is taking place in town, especially the mall.

Hookers in East Brunswick is nothing new. I believe police runs undercover operation for prostitution every year and always same results. So now hooker is unemployed and will be represented by state provided layer......and I dare to say asking for welfare?

As always, thanks to our local police who do a miraculous job under difficult and dangerous conditions.

As an on-duty officer lies on the massage table, homes are being broken into and schools remain undefended. Clearly this was not a happy ending. :)

Can we please focus on the growing robberies happening in this town?!?!? Happy ending massage is not hurting anyone.
Christopher February 13, 2013 at 08:25 PM
It's obviously hurting the ninnies who ratted them out. This kind of stuff should just be legalized.

What happened to the story of the break in on Messler Street? Guess that is not so important.

My thoughts exactly Christopher. Yeah I know it's illegal but is this really news? I wonder how they picked the lucky guy to go in there and spend time on the table. Perhaps they drew straws.

Right on Marilyn.
