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."
