Four days after a massage parlor announced its grand opening on a website watched by police vice officers, three women were arrested there Monday, and one was accused of soliciting prostitution.
Zhang Qiaghua, 46, Zhu Fang, 38, and Wang Jun, 42, were each charged with offering massage services without a license at Holiday Spa at 154 Morrisville Square Way, off Morrisville Carpenter Road near Town Hall Drive.
Qiaghua was charged with soliciting an undercover officer for prostitution on May 29.
Holiday Spa had posted “Grand Opening!!” on its website June 18 and provided the address in the strip shopping center and a phone number.

It’s not unusual for the website where the ad was posted to appear in search warrants or arrest warrants sought by police.
All three women were booked with the spa as their home addresses, though police said when obtaining warrants that they believed Fang lived in Queens in New York City.
The charges are all misdemeanors, and the women were freed on bail after their arrests.
They were told to appear in court on July 23.
