Upper Darby Police said they busted a brothel in Drexel Hill last week and arrested one of the prostitutes, Amy Prudish, and the madame of the house, Margaret Dougherty.
Dougherty, 41, ran the brothel out of her row home on Armdore Avenue and only during the day, when her son was in elementary school, Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said.
Police were alerted to the operation by concerned neighbors and by a print-out advertising "massages by beautiful women" that was sent in anonymously to the department, Chitwood said.
An undercover officer who went to the house last Thursday was greeted by Dougherty who said it would be $180 for a massage, police said. Of that $180, Dougherty told the undercover that $100 went to the house and $80 went to the masseuse, Chitwood said.
