— Investigators say the suspicious activity at a Wake Forest spa was sexual activity.

Wake Forest police received information that sexual favors were being provided along with massage services at Bonnie Spa, located at 10421 Ligon Mill Rd.

An undercover detective patronized the spa, where a worker offered to perform a sex act, police said.

Ying Zhou, 56, was arrested and charged with prostitution and performing a massage without a proper license. She was held at the Wake County jail Thursday under a $2,000 bond.

Li Xiujin Shanghai, 49, was also arrested and charged with performing a massage without a proper license. She was held at the Wake County jail under a $1,000 bond.

The business will not be able to operate as a massage practice until it receives the proper licenses, police said.

    It's only "legal" when the gov't can tax it. Figure out a way to tax it and they'll make it legal.

    Seems like a waste of police time and taxpayer money. They weren't on the streets and what adults do behind closed doors- as long as BOTH parties are in agreement- should be none of anyone else's business.

    Thank God we have courageous law enforcement officers willing to risk it all to protect us from this grave threat to public safety. Surely they will get a medal for their valor.

    I can only imagine the number of posts that weren't allowed!

    so in other words, if they paid for the proper licenses the police would have looked the other way. isn't that how the mafia works?
