Rong Zhang was arrested at her Billerica, Massachusetts apartment and charged with Prostitution after police investigated incidents leading them to believe that she was running a prostitution ring from her home. The investigation started when neighbors complained about an unusual volume of activity at Zhang’s home. Apparently men would enter the property and leave about one half hour later. Police began watching the apartment and confronted a man they saw leave and enter Zhang’s home. The man said that he had responded to an add for a massage. Armed with that information the police, acting in an undercover capacity arranged for a massage of their own. When the officer entered the home he saw Zhang wearing seductive clothing. She started to negotiate fees for sexual acts. The officer then placed her under arrest. The case is pending in the Lowell District Court. Zhang has been charged with Sexual Conduct for a Fee.
