KEARNY —

In a professional building on Midland Ave., near the Post Office, there used to be a business called the Y&L Health Care Clinic. We say “used to be” because last week it got busted.

Kearny police said it  was a massage parlor operating as a front for prostitution.

At 2:30 p.m., Feb. 9, as the result of an ongoing investigation, KPD Vice detectives went to the premises and arrested 64-year-old Jia Cao and 49-year-old Chunlan Yu, residents of Flushing, Queens.

Both were charged with engaging in prostitution; additionally, Yu was charged with promoting it.

The officers also confiscated approximately $500, believed to be the proceeds from illicit proceedings.
