The investigation began after law enforcement received several complaints from concerned citizens in reference to a suspected brothel being operated out of the massage parlor, My Favorite Massage, located on Route 22, Green Brook, New Jersey.
During the course of this investigation, a Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office undercover detective entered the business, My Favorite Massage, where he was met by Weh. During this meeting the undercover detective was propositioned by Weh for a sexual act, in exchange for U.S. currency.
At this time, Task Force members, along with members of the Green Brook Police Department entered the business and placed Weh under arrest. Weh was charged with engaging in prostitution, a disorderly persons offense out of Green Brook Municipal Court. Weh was later processed and released on her own recognizance, pending an appearance in Municipal Court.
