ELKMONT, AL (WAFF) -

An undercover operation ends with two people arrested on prostitution charges in Limestone County. It happened at the Pine Tree Spa in Elkmont Tuesday.

The Limestone County Sheriff's office charged 56-year-old Elyssee Mae O'Conner of Huntsville and 46-year-old Myong Grayson of Oklahoma with promoting prostitution and soliciting prostitution.

The Pine Tree Spa is right off of the I-65 361 Elkmont exit along Elkton road, right next to a truck stop. The business operates as a purported massage spa, but authorities said that was just a front.

Robin Cardwell, the property manager, said the spa was already in business when a new owner bought the lot in April. She said they provided a massage therapy license and business license so the lease, which began with the previous property owner, remained in effect. Cardwell said with the arrests of O'Conner and Grayson, the Pine Tree Spa is out of business.

"We were all shocked to find out what was going on next door. We run a family business. We have a restaurant and a convenience store, and it is very family oriented. And we don't condone what was going on next door. We're not going to stand for that here on this property. They're done. They broke their lease and they're out of here," Cardwell said.

Both of the women arrested were released on a $3,500 bond each.
