St. James Woman Arrested in Patchogue Massage Parlor Raid

The St. James woman was arrested on a charge of seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, police say.

A St. James woman was one of three women arrested Thursday in an illegitimate Patchogue massage parlor, the result of an undercover investigation by Suffolk County Police.

According to police, Justine Rittman, 26, of St. James, was arrested on a charge of seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor.

Police said officers determined an illegal massage parlor was being operated out of a second-floor Patchogue apartment where prostitution was also taking place during their 4:05 p.m. undercover investigation. During the investigation massage tables, oils, a computer and money were seized.

Ashley Jimenez, 26, of Ridge, and Dawn Collins, 23, of Central Islip, were also arrested on charges of unlicensed practice of a profession in the New York State Education Law for being an unlicensed massage therapist, a felony; and prostitution, a misdemeanor.

All three women were held overnight and will be arraigned at First District Court in Central Islip on Friday, police said.

Yeah this is so funny,makes wanna puke.These pathetic girls are our neighbors,sisters,daughters --- whatever.Does anybody really assume that they chose this lifestyle instead of the one that you have.It's a horrible way to live and you should thank God that you or your family isn't involved in the trade.lf the cops have time to harass these girls, I'm sure that they solved the Gilgo Beach fiasco.

Speaking of Gilgo Beach, SCPD's press release brands these girls as prostitutes and plasters their home addressees on their website leading potential serial killers right to their doorsteps. God knows they won't catch the psycho/psychos who dump these girls' bodies in remote areas so might as well help him out and tell him exactly where they live. SCPD is the mafia, and how do we know these gilgo girls weren't whacked with the help of some mafia cops for being competition?

Speaking of solving Gilgo beach, I think they won't be anytime soon. Has anyone considered the possibilty/ probablity that the beach was underwater in Hurricane Sandy? I would think there won't be any new evidence coming out of there, and anything they have now hasn't solved it so far.

These Women are our sisters and daughters, making bad decisions due to our over taxed long island. Homes with both parents, both working more than ever paying highest property tax rates in the nation to support corrupt education and government systems -- killing ourselves to not be home to be a better support system for these kids.

I'm surprised. At RubMaps, you always see Asian women more than white masseuses.
