Three women were arrested in a prostitution sting at two massage parlors in Lee County Monday, after undercover officers say employees offered to perform sex acts for money. 

Tammy Ann Laub, 38, was arrested at the Relaxation Station on Tamiami Trail in south Fort Myers, after an undercover officer went in for a massage, and said she began massaging his genital area.

Quiyan Wang, 51,  was arrested at the nearby East Asian Massage parlor in the Harbor Plaza on Tamiami Trail, after an undercover detective went in and asked for a massage. He stated that Wang asked him if he wanted her to massage his genital area.

When the detective alerted other officers to come in and arrest Wang, they discovered Hungmei Liu, 48, completely nude in another room at East Asian Massage, massaging a man who was also nude. The man told police that Liu had massaged his genital area. 

Liu, Wang and Laub all face prostitution charges. 

While inside East Asian Massage, detectives noticed a sign that read "No sex acts and/or illegal activity are allowed on the business premises."

Hank Porterfield, owner of the Harbor Plaza where East Asian massage is located, said he did not believe the owner of the massage parlor had any knowledge of anything illegal that may have taken place at the business.

"I would be very surprised if there were anything going on that had the sanction of their ownership," Porterfield said.

Laub, Wang and Liu all have court dates on December 13.
