The police have arrested three Russian and an Uzbek for suspected involvement in prostitution-related activities after simultaneous raids in Raffles Boulevard, Tanjong Katong Road and Cairnhill Road.
During the operation, the police seized 13 mobile phones, four laptops, a tablet computer, condoms and related documents.
Two of the suspects were also on their way to a foursome before they were busted.
The girls, aged between 26 and 39, marketed themselves as ‘high class social escorts’ and charged rates starting from $500 an hour, reports Shin Min Daily News via Lianhe Zaobao.
Preliminary investigations revealed that the women sold their services through at least 10 different websites, branding themselves as ‘high class social escorts’.
Although the group listed themselves as social escorts, they listed a range of sexual services, including a two-women-one-man threesome.
Advertisements on the websites introduced the women as ‘modern and luxurious prostitutes’ and they could travel to locations designated by the clients to complete the transactions.
Reporters at the scene observed two women arrested sported blue eyes and blonde hair.
Sources also revealed that they had been ‘booked’ by two male customers and were on the way to a hotel, when the police arrived and arrested the two.
It is understood that among the four, a 39-year-old Russian woman will be charged on Saturday (May 6), while investigations are ongoing for the other three.
The 39-year-old is also suspected to be the mastermind behind the group and survives on income generated by their illegal prostitution activities.
The police also pointed that the four suspects had applied for work permits to stay in Singapore so they could work as prostitutes.
