Authorities say investigators had received numerous complaints about the spa (formerly Pine Tree Spa). They recently conducted a sting operation using undercover agents.

The Limestone County Sheriff’s Office says both of the women arrested have prior prostitution-related charges in other states.

Officials say Elliott was charged with prostitution in 2013 in Illinois. Yu has multiple prior charges related to prostitution from Kentucky and Georgia between 2006 and 2012.
