A Smithtown spa was raided by Suffolk police Tuesday after neighbors complained that they suspected it was a front for prostitution, police said.
Three Queens women were arrested at 5:20 p.m. at the Blue Spa at 207 Terry Rd. and were charged with prostitution. One also was charged with providing massages without a license.
The three, all from Flushing, were held overnight at the Fourth Precinct pending arraignment Wednesday at First District Court, Central Islip.
The arrests came after Suffolk police "conducted an investigation where it was discovered that women performed unlicensed massages and sexual acts for a fee," a police report said.
"Police seized $1,342 in cash, massage tables, and other items commonly used in prostitution activity," the report said.
Queens whores apparently are making a mint on Long Island. They might be here, too, but you never hear about any of them being arrested for it.
