On Wednesday, June 11th, the Pismo Beach Police Department with the assistance of a San Luis Obispo Police Department, conducted a coordinated selective enforcement detail designed to target prostitution at local massage parlors.
An undercover Investigator responded to China Massage located at 1321 Price St. to investigate allegations of prostitution.
Posing as a customer, the undercover Investigator asked for a sexual favor in which the masseuse, 55-year-old Deng Ling of Fresno, agreed to the sexual act in exchange for money. Ling was arrested and booked at the San Luis Obispo County Jail with bail set at $2,000.00. In 2010, a similar operation was conducted at China Massage, in which one subject was arrested for prostitution.
Additional businesses were targeted in Pismo Beach but found to be in compliance.
