UPDATE: Woman Hit With Prostitution Charge At Cranford Massage Parlor
The following information was provided by the Cranford Police Department. An arrest does not indicate a conviction.
A 50-year-old woman from Flushing, N.Y. was arrested Wednesday afternoon and charged with allegedly soliciting prostitution following an undercover operation at a local massage parlor.
According to police reports, Christina Lew, an employee of Natural Healing, 312 North Ave. East, was arrested by members of the Cranford Police Department at approximately 1:45 p.m.
"Following an investigation and undercover operation targeting a local massage parlor, Detective Ryan Greco arrested Christine Lew for soliciting prostitution," Detective Gerard Quinn said in a press release.
According to Police Chief Eric Mason, the investigation lasted two weeks.
Police indicated that Lew was processed and released with a court appearance scheduled for Feb. 7 in Cranford Municipal Court.
The massage business is located in a multi-unit office building on North Avenue East. No charges were brought against Natural Healing, the chief said.
"Our investigation reveals no indication of involvement beyond the single employee," Mason added.
This is not the first time that an investigation into prostitution charges involving Lew has taken place at Natural Healing. In March of 2012, police arrested Lew following a four-month prostitution investigation. Lew was arrested along with Jie Wang, 49, of Fresh Meadows, N.Y.
