Alleged Prostitute Arrested After Anonymous Tip, Cops Say
Cops charged 45-year-old woman with engaging in prostitution at Mahwah motels
An anonymous complaint led to the arrest of a New York City woman engaging in prostitution, Mahwah Police Chief James Batelli said Thursday.
Yit Har Chin, 45, was arrested late Wednesday afternoon at a Mahwah hotel, Batelli said. Chin was allegedly “offering sexual services for a fee,” at Mahwah motels, and was working there “independently,” Batelli said.
Chin has a prior arrest for a sex offense in Boston, Massachusetts, according to cops.
Police seized money and a laptop allegedly used for “criminal activities,” following the arrest, Batelli said.
The investigation into this incident, which is ongoing, is being led by Mahwah Detective Lt. Martin Clancy and Detective Kevin Hebert.
