Two employees at two different spas in Cary were charged after they allegedly offered sex acts to undercover agents in exchange for money, authorities said.
The McHenry County Human Trafficking Task Force, which is coordinated through the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office, conducted operations at four spa locations in Cary, according to Cary Police Department Deputy Chief Scott Naydenoff.
The operations were conducted on March 4 involving undercover law enforcement officers.
During the operation, undercover law enforcement officers received standard massage services at the locations.
Naydenoff said the officers were also offered sexual acts in exchange for money at two of the locations — Anytime Spa at 188 Northwest Highway and Aroma 8 Spa at 46 Crystal Street.
After the operation on March 4, investigators obtained search warrants for Anytime Spa and Aroma 8 Spa.
The second phase of the operation was conducted on March 23 involving only the two establishments at which undercover law enforcement officers were solicited during the March 4 operation, Naydenoff said.
Investigators served the search warrants at both locations and detained the individuals found at each location.
No charges were filed against any employees found on location at Anytime Spa on March 23.
Officers were able to positively identify the employee at Anytime Spa who offered to perform a sex act in exchange for money during the March 4 operation, Naydenoff said.
Court records show the woman, identified as Otgontuul Davaa, 48, of Des Plaines, was charged with solicitation of a sexual act, a Class A misdemeanor. She is still currently wanted.
Two employees at Aroma 8 Spa were charged on March 23.
One of them, identified as Jishuan Li, 54, of Flushing, New York, was charged with solicitation of a sexual act, a Class A misdemeanor.
The other was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, a Class A misdemeanor.
Police said they notified the Village of Cary Code Enforcement Section of the violations since the village municipal code prohibits these types of activities at licensed massage establishments.
The Cary Police Department, Crystal Lake Police Department, Lake in the Hills Police Department, Spring Grove Police Department, Huntley Police Department, Woodstock Police Department, Downers Grove Police Department and the Department of Homeland Security were involved in the operations.
