Inna Shtotland, 49, was released on a summons to appear in Municipal Court on Thursday on charges of engaging in prostitution following her arrest earlier today.

Waldwick Detective Sgt. Troy Seifert opened the case after receiving reports of possible prostitution at the Wyckoff Avenue office suite, which Lt. Douglas Moore said was registered to Serenity Massage Therapy.

Police immediately notified the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office, which has been assisting local departments with prostitution investigations out of concern for possible human trafficking.

“An undercover detective made an appointment for a massage and when he arrived, he was led to a private room where he was solicited to engage in acts of prostitution,” Moore said.

The detective immediately signaled backups — including officers from Allendale and Ho-Ho-Kus — who moved in, he said.
