"MOUNT CLEMENS -- Police said today they have shut down a prostitution ring operating out of a beauty salon in nearby Harrison Township. Officers have arrested and charged two women, Macomb County Sheriff Mark Hackel said today. Police arrested the women on Thursday during an undercover investigation into the Four Seasons salon and spa at Metropolitan Parkway and Crocker Boulevard, he said. Complaints from several Harrison Township residents prompted the investigation, according to police.
In yet another example of comprehensive law enforcement, undercover officers arrested and charged the higher up in the "prostitution ring" not just the prostituted woman. "Hackel identified the women as Yun Ok Shin, 48, of Rochester Hills and Ji Fu Xu, 49, of Harrison Township. Shin was arraigned in 41-B District Court on Friday on two charges: keeping a house of prostitution, a five-year felony, and admitting to a place of prostitution, a 93-day misdemeanor. A judge set her bond at $5,000. "

Meanwhile, Xu was arraigned on a count of prostitution, a 93-day misdemeanor. Her bond was set at $1,000.
