Police shut down studio where women sold sex

- You'd miss it if you were driving down the Gulf Freeway, but the jig is now up at Miyun Modeling Studio. It's an old, aging building with boarded up windows.

The Harris County Attorney says the place was operated under the radar by Yun Pak for the last 8 to 9 years.

Assistant County Attorney Julie Countiss says women would sell sex in the studio.

Investigators say she charged a door fee just to get in -- anywhere from $60 to $160.

Countiss says, "Miyun Studio was advertising on websites known as information sources for people looking for prostitution or looking for a prostitute."

Those who work in the area, like Jeff Lynn, say the business takes a toll on communities and even families.

"It breaks up a lot of marriages," he says. "I see a lot of men visit the place and I feel bad for their families."

The ounty attorney's office isn't the only entity to focus on the Gulf Freeway and its sex trade as of late.

Just last moth HPD arrested two dozen men for trying to buy sex in the area.

For now Miyun Studio is out of business after the county took the business to court and labeled it a nuisance.
