The Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office reports the arrest of two (2) subjects resulting from the investigation into illicit activity at a local spa in Dutchess County.

Approximately 5 months ago the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office became aware of possible illegal activity at “Sunday Spa,” which is a massage therapy business located at 404 Manchester Rd in the Town of LaGrange. An investigation was initiated into the Sunday Spa after complaints and tips were received that there was illegal activity, including prostitution, going on there. As a result of the investigation the two individuals identified below were arrested on 10/23/13:

1. Jianxia Xin (female, age 51, from Flushing NY)
2. Ju-Xian Wang (female, age 53, from Flushing NY)

Both subjects have been charged with Practicing a Profession While Unlicensed (Class E Felony) and Prostitution (Class B Misdemeanor). Both were arraigned at the Town of Poughkeepsie Court and were remanded to the Dutchess County Jail in lieu of $10,000 cash bail/$20,000 bond, and are due to reappear before the Town of LaGrange Court on 11/19/13 at 4 pm. The Sheriff’s Office was assisted in the investigation by the Department of Homeland Security, the Town of Poughkeepsie Police Department, and the City of Poughkeepsie Police Department. As in any other criminal case the charges described above are merely accusations, and the defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
