Langley woman arrested in 'bawdy house,' say RCMP

Two Chilliwack massage parlours suspected of offering sexual services to customers face possible suspension of business licences and six arrests have been made, including a 48-year-old Langley woman.

Police said a search warrant executed Jan. 12 at a business in the 8300-block Young Road resulted in the arrest of three females and one male customer,.

A 48-year-old woman from Langley, a 44-year-old woman from Coquitlam, a 70-year-old woman from the Lower Mainland area, and a 41-year-old man from Chilliwack were arrested. All were released from custody on promises to return to court in April.

A second search Jan. 19 of a business in the 9200-block Young Road resulted in the arrest of a 38-year-old "female worker," police said, a Hong Kong woman in Canada on a visitors visa, and a 38-year-old "male customer" from Saskatchewan. They were also released from custody on promises to return to court.

Sgt. Steve McLeod, head of the RCMP's crime reduction unit,said there is no indication at this point that the two business are linked to each other, or connected to organized crime or human trafficking.

"But investigators continue the process to rule that out conclusively," he added.

The names of the two businesses and the six people detained were not released.
