ROXBURY, NJ - Three women at massage parlors in Kenvil and Ledgewood were charged this week with prostitution following investigations by local police and federal authorities, it was announced today.

The women, Meihua Paio, 44, of Flushing, NY, HaiYu Quan, 49, of Flushing, NY and Zhenji Jin, 51, of Randolph, were released pending municipal court appearances, said police. They said all three were charged April 22 with engaging in prostitution.

Paio was arrested at The Paradine Spa at 967 Route 46 in Kenvil, Quan was charged at Wawoo Spa, at 410 Route 10 West in Ledgewood and Jin was charged at Kenvil Spa at 694 Route 46 in Kenvil, said police.

They said two other women were taken into custody by officers from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI). One of those women was "the subject of a final order of deportation" and the other was found to have overstayed her Visa Waiver Program provisions, police said.

The arrests seemingly did not put the massage parlors out of business; all were open for business on Friday. 

"They have a doorbell," said a woman who works in a business near one of the establishments. She asked to remain anonymous. "I can hear the doorbell and I can see guys going around back." 

At one point, after prior police involvement, the spa "went legit for two weeks," said the woman. "You can tell when they don't cover the windows." She said she was actually suggesting people patronize the place because the foot massages "were amazing."

Joining Roxbury police and HSI in the investigations was the Hopatcong Police Department and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) officers, police said.
