Scotia Police say they busted up a prostitution case at the Mohawk Foot Spa on Mohawk Avenue and have arrested two women from New York City.
The women – Feng Zhao, 49, and Li Fang, 50 – are from Flushing, Queens and are each charged with Prostitution (misdemeanor) and Unauthorized Practice of a Profession for providing massages without a license under the state Education law (felony). They were arraigned in Village Court and sent to the Schenectady County Jail on $10,000 bail each.
“Being a small community, we almost always find out about criminal activity,” said Police Chief Pete Frisoni in a statement. “When we do, we target those involved using all available resources, including assistance from our local, state and federal law enforcement partners.”
