Prostitution Arrest Made at Oceanside Acupuncture Establishment

Undercover operation leads to unauthorized practice, prostitution charges on Merrick Road.

Two Queens women were arrested in Oceanside Tuesday afternoon after a police investigation revealed both women were practicing massage therapy without a license.

According to Nassau County detectives, an undercover investigation of an acupuncture establishment located at 433 Merrick Road revealed that Feng Shu Chang, 48, and Xiao Lin, 31, practiced massage therapy without a license on various occasions.

Police said that Lin also offered to engage in a sexual act for an undisclosed amount of money.

Both defendants are being charged with unauthorized practice. Lin is also charged with prostitution. They will both be arraigned on Wednesday at First District Court in Hempstead.

The arrests in Oceanside come after a total of eight spa workers were arrested at two locations in West Hempstead earlier in January -- five of whom were charged with prostitution.

What does everyone think goes on in these places!!! It seems every block now has a foot massage place with blacked out windows, what a joke.

This article has convinced me that I need to go to the gun store to buy a gun to protect myself. The police are wasting their time busting drugless and hookers and cannot protect me. The police are revenue agents who help to keep the drug price high by busting drugless for the CIA (see Youtube about CIA dealing drugs), arresting Johns so the court system can make money from fining them, arresting hookers so the drug rehab companies can make money off drug rehab classes, etc.
