Eun Hug Heo, 38, Kyoung Hee Yoo, 34, Xingyue Xu, 36 and Chong Ok LeBlanc, 59, were arrested Wednesday at Bali Spa located at 9533 Parkway East by vice detectives with the Birmingham Police Department.

LeBlanc was charged with operating a house of prostitution, Yoo and Xu were charged with residing in a house of prostitution and Heo was charged with soliciting prostitution. The suspects have addresses from various states.
