BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) — Police say a 66-year-old Bennington, Vermont, woman has been charged with prostitution following a search of a spa in town.

Suk Cha Ko was arrested on Monday.

Police have not said if she is connected to the Cozy Spa.

Ko is scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 30. It was not immediately known if she is being represented by an attorney. A person who answered the phone at the spa on Tuesday said the owner was not around.

The former owner of the Cozy Spa was cited on a charge of prostitution in 2013 after police and FBI searched the spa and another one in Bennington as part of an investigation into possible prostitution and human trafficking.
