Two women employed at separate massage parlors were recently arrested for soliciting sexual acts from an undercover Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office deputy.

Myong Kim, 61, of Columbus, who works at Edge Massage Therapy LLC, which is located at 765 McFarland Parkway, Suite C, was charged with prostitution on March 2 after the sheriff’s office conducted an undercover operation, according to Deputy Doug Rainwater, a spokesman for the sheriff’s office.

Junge Blanton, 59, of Lawrenceville, who works at Pine Health Club and Spa, located at 102 Colony Park Drive Suite 500 in Cumming, was also arrested for prostitution the same day.

Edge Massage was cited in January for various business-related ordinance violations after reportedly being found in noncompliance with county codes. In 2009, two women who worked at Pine Health Club and Spa were charged with prostitution after the sheriff’s office conducted an undercover operation.

The recent operations began in February after the sheriff’s office received a tip regarding illegal activities occurring at the parlors, Rainwater said.

In March 2016, the sheriff’s office, under then-Sheriff Duane Piper, conducted a massive undercover sting that targeted parlors and either shut down or cited more than a dozen that violated a local ordinance.

Of the 15 checked during that sweep, 18 citations were issued, though neither Edge Massage nor Pine Health Club was investigated at that time.

Rainwater said while the two businesses were not shut down in this most recent crackdown, the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners may choose to take that step.

“This [operation] only concentrated on the criminal side of things, but our ordinance and permits division will follow up,” Rainwater said. “It will be up to the county commissioners to suspend or revoke the [parlors’] business licenses.”

Both women were transported to the Forsyth County Jail and posted a $3,320 bond.
