An undercover deputy arrested a massage parlor employee for soliciting sexual activities.

Junling Liu was charged with engaging in prostitution at the Best of Naples spa on Tamiami Trail.

According to police reports, the undercover deputy walked into the business Thursday and asked for a massage. Liu offered "manual stimulation" for an extra $80.  When the deputy walked outside to get some extra cash, he signaled for back-up to come in and arrest Liu.

"We've been wondering what's been going on over there," said Carol Engle, who takes lessons at a nearby dance studio.

The massage parlor was open when Fox 4 went inside to speak with the manager, but our reporter was asked to leave.

In light of a recent sex trafficking sting at several massage parlors in Southwest Florida, Engle is surprised it took authorities so long to check on Best Naples Spa.

"I read the report in the paper and I always wondered if they would come back here and look into it."

Liu was being held in the Collier County jail on $2,000 bond.
