BAKERSFIELD – Three women from the San Gabriel Valley were cited for performing sexual services at three massage facilities in unincorporated areas of Kern County. An undercover sting operation was conducted on Monday at the three facilities. The three women were cited and released for misdemeanor county ordinance violations or for solicitation of prostitution.
The Bakersfield businesses involved were the Sunflower Massage, located at 700 Airport Drive, the Sweet Asian Massage located at 314 Norris Road and the New Oriental Massage located at 1928 North Chester Avenue.
Chunping Li, 54, of Alhambra, was working at the Sunflower Massage when she was cited and released after she was found in a room with an exposed genital part and touching a genital part. Zhaomei Liang, 51, of San Gabriel, was cited for solicitation of prostitution while working at the Sweet Asian Massage. Bao Hong Dong, 55, of Baldwin Park was cited for solicitation of prostitution while working at the New Oriental Massage.
All were ordered to close immediately due to violation of county ordinances. “This is the second sting operation under a new County Ordinance whereby Public Health regulates massage establishments to ensure they maintain a safe and sanitary environment as well as establish reasonable standards to reduce the opportunity for acts of prostitution and human trafficking to occur,” said the Kern County Public Health officials. “We partner with the Kern County Sheriff’s Office to investigate all complaints and reports of suspected or known prostitution and/or human trafficking activities in massage establishments.”
