UNION TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

An undercover operation at Eastgate Mall ended with four people facing charges related to prostitution, as a massage parlor at the mall was exposed as an alleged front for prostitution.

The Green Spa, located at the Eastgate Mall, was a spa and massage parlor. It had been open since late 2009. In February, Union Township Police received a tip that the Green Spa was giving out more than massages.

"You kind of think of things like that for downtown, but you don't think of it in the small suburban areas," said shopper Robb Webb.

"It's a mall! At least find a private setting for something like that," said shopper Sydnee Savage.

An undercover unit was able to determine that there were illegal activities going on in the spa. Owner Baojian Xiang, Deqiu Nie, Cai Ma Xiang and Guizhen Wang are all facing charges.

Police say that the Eastgate Mall was cooperative during the entire investigation.
