Police say prostitution was taking place at an apartment on West Roe Boulevard.

Three women were arrested Thursday afternoon after an undercover investigation revealed that an illegal massage parlor was operating out of a Patchogue apartment, police said. 

Police raided the apartment, where they say prostitution was taking place, at 305A West Roe Boulevard shortly after 4 p.m. 

Officers seized massage tables, oils, a computer and money, police said. 

Ashley Jimenez, 26, of Ridge, and Dawn Collins, 23, of Central Islip, were arrested and charged with unlicensed practice of a profession (unlicensed massage therapist) in the New York State Education Law and prostitution, a misdemeanor. 

Justine Rittman, 26, of St. James, was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor. 

All three women will be held overnight and are scheduled to be arraigned at First District Court in Central Islip on Friday. 

Update Friday, 8:50 a.m.: Mugshots for Jimenez, Collins and Rittman have been added to the gallery section.

More of our tax dollars going to waste ruining the lives of innocent struggling women/single mothers. The police should be ashamed of themselves. I saw this arraignment and there was NO evidence against these kids, just a bunch of fascists bs.

Last time I checked prostitution is illegal. Typical apathetic response. People just don't care about the law anymore. Look at what goes on right here at Patchogue Village Hall. Nobody cares.

THE ONLY PERSON THAT SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES IS YOU, FOR POSTING SUCH AN IGNORANT COMMENT. INNOCENT STRUGGLING WOMEN, ARE YOU KIDDING ME, PROSTITUTION IS ILLEGAL. WHY WERE YOU AT THE ARRAIGNMENT, UNLESS YOU HAD A VESTED INTEREST. AN ARRAIGNMENT IS FOR THE DEFENDANT TO APPEAR BEFORE A JUDGE TO ANSWER THE INDICTMENT. ALL THE EVIDENCE WILL COME LATER AS I'M SURE YOU ARE AWARE OF. AS FAR AS CALLING THESE PROSTITUTES KIDS, THEIR AGES WERE 26, 23 AND 26, THEY ARE NOT KIDS. AS FAR AS TAX DOLLARS GO, HOW MUCH TAX WERE THESE PROSTITUTES TAKING IN FOR SUFFOLK COUNTY. TRY NOT TO MAKE ANYMORE FOOLISH COMMENTS ON HERE, YOU SOUND RIDICULOUS.

I HAVE BEEN THREATENED I DIDNT DO ANYTHING!!!! THERE ARE REAL CRIMINALS OUT THERE that should be brought to justice not someone who is innocent!!!!

People like this are everywhere. Have you seen that site Rub Maps? That site is like the Yelp of Happy Endings. Feels like it's no prostitution but just 'business.'
