According to Sheffler,  Heng Wan, 42, was arrested and charged with running the establishment out of a house on Delilah Road.  The exact location or address of the house has not been announced.

Sheriff Sheffler says the arrest was the culmination of a five-month investigation by Detectives and Agents from the Atlantic County Sheriff’s Office, Egg Harbor Township Police Department and the FBI Human Trafficking and Child Exploitation Task Force. It's suspected that the brothel was up and running for at least two years. As many as ten customers per day visited the home.

Sheffler says it was a tip from a concerned citizen that sparked the investigation.
