Two women are facing prostitution charges after an investigation by the Palm Desert Police Business District Team.

The sheriff's department says the special unit began investigating after getting a number of complaints about suspicious activity at a residence on Lupine Lane south of Highway 111.

Officers served a search warrant on September 15th and say they found evidence of prostitution.

63-year old Yan Zhang and 33-year old Mei Qin were arrested and booked into the county jail in Banning.

Along with prostitution charges, both women face multiple municipal code violations.
