EAST RIDGE, TN, (WDEF)-Son An Chin and Sun Duty aged between 50 and 65 awaiting a November court date after police felt their Midori Health Spa was a front for organized prostitution.

Corporal Wade,"We will do a sting operation every now and then, our patrol units late at night will sometimes encounter prostitutes or individuals expected of prostitution in the area near the hotels or around late at night on the street

Police seized more than four-thousand dollars in cash.

Neighboring business owners say the salon has been pretty quiet in recent months, however just before the summer they saw a lot of Asian ladies flocking around at the rear of the business smoking cigarettes

Peggy Ha also runs a Spa, a legitimate face and nail salon less than half a mile from Midori.

"some of my clientele is older clients, they feel secure when I keep my door locked on a daily basis"

After running her business for 9 years Peggy feels East Ridge is suffering due to organized crime.

"I feel East Ridge is kind of down in a sense, we need more things in here, to bring people in here but also when you hear of the crime and so forth"

A number of sex workers and escort agents told us off camera that they were surprised that an organized outfit like Midori  was busted as it's usually independent sex workers who get arrested.
