The parlors are owned and operated by Lin, Wang and Zhang, police said.
In their investigation, police said, they found two women from New York who were living at an apartment in Gaithersburg. Police detectives saw Lin drive the women to the parlors to work and learned through interviews that the women were often providing “sexual services” to male customers.
On June 12, detectives got warrants for the three, and they were arrested. Lin and Wang were being held on a $25,000 bond. There was no immediate bond information for Zhang, according to police.
Officials said there may be other victims in the incident.
