Two women at two different massage parlor locations in Hall County were arrested on prostitution-related charges on Wednesday, Dec. 19, by the Hall County-Gainesville Multi-Agency Narcotics Squad.
According to a press release, the task force officers arrested Jean Ann Medina, 64, of Ray City, on charges of prostitution and masturbation for hire at a property in the 1700 block of Atlanta Highway in Gainesville, and Li Ying Wang, 55, of Atlanta, for keeping a place of prostitution and masturbation for hire at a property in the 200 block of John Morrow Parkway in Gainesville.
The Atlanta Highway location is known as Bali Massage, and the John Morrow Parkway business is known as Joy Massage.
Law enforcement officials said they had received complaints about possible illegal activity at these businesses. Task force officers acted in an undercover capacity during the operation.
The arrests in this case come after multiple sting operations on different locations within the county.
Joy Massage on John Morrow Parkway opened in September, according to a local merchant who spoke with The Times.
Lt. Don Scalia said no other arrests are expected.
