Clarence, NY

Erie County Sheriff's deputies conducted an undercover sting operation which resulted in the arrest of two women on prostitution and forcible touching charges.

Eyewitness News first reported about prostitution going on at the 9135 Sheridan Driver location in Clarence in October of last year.

Back then the operation was called "Flourishing Spa" police shut it down after neighbors reported seeing men entering the building round the clock and arrested
47 year old Hongping Zhang for prostitution and unlicensed massage therapy.

But authorities received reports the business was back open under a new name: "Oriental Body Work."

Despite the new name nearby neighbors reported seeing the same suspicious activity.

Authorities also used an informant to help with the investigation and found nearly $11,000 in cash hidden throughout the building.

Investigators are trying to determine if the two suspects arrested Friday are connected to the woman arrested last October but they have not made that determination yet.
