YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: An hours-long sting by Little Ferry police at a local motel led to the arrests of three alleged hookers and four others charged with promoting prostitution.
Little Ferry detectives working with their colleagues from Bergen County Prosecutor’s Special lnvestigation Squad conducted the sting yesterday at the Rodeway Inn (formerly the Capri) off Route 46 and Bergen Turnpike, Police Chief Ralph Verdi told CLIFFVIEW PILOT this afternoon.
Arrested at 7:45 p.m. were Xu Yu Yun, 43, of Flushing, Queens, on charges of engaging in prostitution and two alleged accomplices from California — Qinlong Lee, 21, of San Gabriel and 23-year-old Yichao Geng — on promoting prostitution charges, he said.
At 9 p.m., they arrested Kelly Williams, 37, of Paterson, and charged her with engaging in prostitution, Verdi said.
A Bronx trio was later arrested at 11 p.m.: Glennys Arias, 34, was charged with engaging in prostitution; charged with promoting it were Lorraine Rodriguez and Rafael Gonzalez, 29, he said.
The three alleged prostitutes were interviewed by investigators from the prosecutor’s Human Trafficking Unit and determined not to be victims, the chief said.
