Nassau County detectives arrested three Queens women Tuesday on charges of unauthorized practice in connection with massage therapy in Bethpage.
Members of the Narcotics/Vice Bureau made the arrests Tuesday afternoon, at Meis Foot Spa, at 378 North Wantagh Avenue when the three performed massage therapy on undercover detectives without a license, police said. State law requires a license to perform massage therapy.
According to detectives, the defendants, all from Flushing, Queens, are, Xiu Mei Ma, 44 of 6206 Main St., Bi Rong Dong, 41, of 5670 136th St., and Lijuan Li, 38 of 17332 64th Ave.
Xiu Mei Ma has been arrested three previous times at this location, accused of the same crime, detectives said.
All the defendants are charged with one count of unauthorized practice. They are scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday at First District Court in Hempstead.
