State Law Enforcement Division agents allege Hong Song Wang, 49, operated a brothel under the business names Miao Massage Spa and Massage Serenity Spa, located in the 8600 block of Dorchester Road in North Charleston. The new charges include two counts of operating a house of ill fame or brothel, both related to the North Charleston business.

A magistrate judge set a personal recognizance bond on the two new charges, which means she did not have to pay any money to get out of jail.

On Tuesday, SLED agents charged Wang with operating a house of prostitution at another massage parlor in Moncks Corner.

According to new affidavits in the Dorchester County case, agents started a surveillance operation at the Dorchester Road spa in June of this year. Court papers state that in October, an undercover agent paid for a one hour long massage and reported the massage worker took off the agent’s towel and massaged his private parts.

The agent said he recorded the incident.

SLED agents also seized receipts from the business and noticed most of the customers were men and that the tips were larger than what would be paid for a normal massage.

On Wednesday a magistrate gave Wang a PR bond on the two new charges which means she didn’t have to pay any money to get out of jail.
