FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Undercover detectives have arrested an employee at a Fort Myers spa for prostitution after they say she offered sex acts to a customer.

40-year-old Jing Li was arrested Wednesday.

Lee County investigators say they were conducting undercover operations at local massage parlors and sent an undercover detective into Lavender Oil Spa on S. Tamiami Trail, where they were greeted by Li.

The detective says he paid Li $50 for a massage. Once under way, Li reportedly made a gesture towards the detective's genitals, and they agreed to a sex act for an additional $40. When Li began to reach for the detective, he gave the signal for members of the narcotics unit to enter the room.

Li was taken to the Lee County jail for booking.
