The Schuylkill County District Attorney's Office reported today two persons were arrested on prostitution charges stemming from an investigation police launched after receiving complaints about that type of activity taking place at the Aroma Spa, 511 Rt. 61 South, North Manheim Township.
Officials said Sung Chun Yang, 47, of Rockville, Md., and Miduck Park, 47, of Philadelphia, were arraigned before District Justice James Ferrier, Orwigsburg, on charges of prostitution and related offenses and criminal solicitation.
They were committed to the Schuylkill County Prison, Pottsville, in lieu of $2,500 bail each.
Police said the arrests were made when police executed a search warrant on July 27 at 2:45 p.m. at the business. During the process, police seized surveillance cameras, money, communication equipment, business records and prostitution-related equipment.
The warrant was obtained after police opened an investigation of the possibility of prostitution taking place there after received civilian complaints.
The two defendants are scheduled for a preliminary hearing at 9:45 a.m. Friday, Aug. 5.
