MERIDIAN, Idaho — Meridian police have arrested two women and charged them with prostitution after serving search warrants at two locations Wednesday morning.

The search warrants were executed at Bamboo Massage Spa, located at 3035 West McMillan Road and a home in the 6000 block of North Silver Spruce Avenue in Meridian.

Police said the investigation began 18 months ago after multiple people complained that employees at Bamboo Massage Spa were offering sexual acts in exchange for money.

Investigators arrested 38-year-old Weihua Di and 45-year-old Meina Hou, both of Meridian. Each is charged with one count of misdemeanor prostitution.

Police say they also recovered around $30,000 in cash during the residential search.

Both were cited and released because of COVID-19. 

Police are continuing to investigate the case, and thanked the community for their help.
