Three women were arrested Tuesday in connection with a prostitution ring being run out of a Bridgeville massage parlor.

Police have been investigating 88 Spa on Washington Avenue since Dec. 2011, two months after it was granted an occupancy permit, Bridgeville police Chief Chad King said.

Between Dec. 2011 and July 2012, police collected evidence, which was passed onto the FBI, he said. Chief King said he would like to thank borough residents for their patience during the investigation.

Ok Ja Ko, 52, from Aurora, Colo., was charged with a felony count each of promoting prostitution and conspiracy, and a misdemeanor count of prostitution.

Chong Hee Kil, 57, of Glenview, Ill., was charged with a felony count each of promoting prostitution and conspiracy.

Heemae Jeong, 58, from Fort Lee, N.J., was charged with a felony count of conspiracy and a misdemeanor count of prostitution.
