Two women were arrested for providing masturbation at a Martinez massage parlor.
Kyong Cha Yun, 57, of Tampa, Fla., and Soon Jan Han, 54, of Doraville, Ga., were charged with masturbation for hire.
On Dec. 11, Yun agreed to and attempted to masturbate an undercover Columbia County sheriff's investigator at the King Spa at 337 S. Belair Road. The investigator paid $60 for a massage.
No specifics were included in a police report regarding Han's arrest.

Woman held in shoplifting
An employee of the Columbia County Probate Court was charged with trying to shoplift from an Augusta Mall department store.
On Jan. 23, while working special duty at Dillard's, a Richmond County sheriff's deputy saw Amy Sturkey, 25, and another woman take several clothing items into a dressing room. When the women came out of the dressing room, the deputy said, their purses appeared larger than when they went in.
The deputy tried to stop the women as they left the store, but Sturkey, of the 300 block of Calico Trail in Martinez, refused to stop and went back into the store. The deputy said she pulled a sweater from her shopping bag and put it onto a clothes rack. Sturkey refused to go with the deputy to the security office, even after he grabbed her arm.
The deputy grabbed Sturkey's wrist and walked her to the security office. The second woman ran away after she removed two vests from her purse. The vests were found in a trash can outside the store entrance. Sturkey offered to pay for the sweater and two dresses.
Sturkey was charged with shoplifting and obstruction of a law enforcement officer. She was released from the Augusta-Richmond County Detention Center on her own recognizance the same day, according to jail personnel.
The following accounts were taken from reports from the Columbia County Sheriff's Office. Additional reports are available at www.columbiacountyso.org:
