BELLEVUE, Wash. (AP) - Two Bellevue spas have been targeted under a new city ordinance designed to clean up prostitution and drug activity.

KING-TV reports (https://kng5.tv/1EYb0yK ) police have deemed Jolee Spa and Factoria’s Sunnyday Spa “chronic nuisances,” opening both up to possible fines and potential prosecution.

Undercover detectives discovered three separate incidents of criminal acts, most of them involving sex for cash, at both spas.

Police Deputy Chief Mike Johnson says police are doing their best to put a stop to prostitution in the city.

A sign has been placed on the window of Sunnyday Spa indicating it would reopen in a few days. A man and a woman outside of Jolee Spa declined to comment as they locked the front door.

Both businesses have 15 days to respond to the “chronic nuisance” determination.
