PRESCOTT, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - A woman is in trouble with the law after police said she was behind a business that housed prostitution in Prescott.

According to police, officers searched a business on Miller Valley Road south of Whipple Street on Wednesday around 1:30 p.m. The department said they received information prostitution was going on there.

Officers talked to Xia Du, the operator of the business, and she admitted to being involved, police said.

A man who was a client there was cited and released for engaging in prostitution, according to police.

These folks are pretty industrious, aren't they? If there was no market for prostitution in Prescott, there would be no house of prostitution to raid.
