EDGEWATER - Twenty seven people have been arrested for alleged ties to prostitution including alleged hookers and their drivers.

In some cases, police say local hotels were used, but some say the crimes took place at massage parlors including five in Edgewater.

The spas include World Health Spa, and another called Jade Spa. News 12 New Jersey attempted to get answers at Jade Spa but no one would speak on behalf of the business.

Simmon Song, who owns a dry cleaner within sight of Jade, says that he believed the spa was a legitimate business.

Arrests were also made in Palisades Park, Garfield, Paramus and Harrington Park.
