BELGRADE, Mont. -

Three women are facing promotion of prostitution charges after an undercover operation on two Belgrade businesses.

Police arrested 51 year old Jihong Yu, 52 year old Yu-Sun Gasperi and 70 year old Ok Nan Tenette on Monday.

We have gone through documents filed by prosecutors to get the details on the allegations.

In court records records, officers say they learned about the alleged prostitution at the Beijing Spa and VIP Spa in Belgrade from a confidential informant.

Court records say in both cases officers fitted an informant with a recorder and sent him in to the spas.

Yu, Gasperi and Tenette are facing one felony charge each of promotion of prostitution.  If convicted they face up to 10 years in prison and a $50,000 fine.
