Three Benton Harbor Women Arrested in Prostitution Bust


Three women are behind bars Friday after a prostitution bust in Benton Harbor.

Police say several tips prompted a 2-month investigation at ‘Classic Spa’.

That is located at 100 West Main Street in Benton Harbor.

50-year-old Young Soon Yi and 57-year-old Chong Suk Lemmer were arrested Wednesday on a felony charge of keeping a prostitution house.

Also, 47-year-old Myeoung Snow was arrested on prostitution and solicitation charges.

The investigation revealed an organized prostitution ring of Korean women from Battle Creek, Louisville, Kentucky and even Seattle.

Police seized more than $1,000 in cash.

Investigators believe the spa was likely part of a larger operation.
