    Police and FBI agents made several arrests in an alleged prostitution ring involving two spas and a home in Dallas.

    Two spas -- the Rosemeade Spa on Rosemeade Parkway near the President George Bush Turnpike and the J.J. Asian Health Center on Alpha Road near Montfort Drive -- were raided and shut down Monday after being under surveillance by the FBI for two years. A home in the 13300 block of Kit Lane in Dallas was also raided.

    NBC 5 has obtained mug shots and identifying information for three women arrested on charges of engaging in organized criminal activity and who are associated with the Dallas Police Department report number for the prostitution investigation.

    Yu Tao Chen and Pang Hsiang Lin are both listed as having been charged with engaging in organized criminal activity. Both have bonds in the amount of $100,000. Police records show both are being held by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

    A third woman, Yvanli Zhang, faces a charge of engaging in organized criminal activity and is specifically being held by Collin County investigators for the prostitution ring. She also faces an immigration charge.

    Federal prosecutors have scheduled a news conference for 3 p.m. Wednesday afternoon in Plano to announce further details.
