    A Northern Virginia woman is believed to be connected to at least four separate prostitution busts in Fairfax County.

    According to a search warrant filed this week in Fairfax County Circuity Court, police busted a massage company known as "Sunshine Therapy" in March 2009 for allegedly offering sexual services, including intercourse.

    The warrant says Qiuxiang Liu's name was on the lease and employees of "Sunshine Therapy" said Liu was the owner.

    While several of the therapists were charged with prostitution, Liu pleaded to a lesser permitting violation.

    Three years, later Liu's name popped up on two more leases. One was for an apartment in a Leesburg Pike building and the other was for another "Sunshine Therapy."

    Police linked both locations to prostitution and Liu was convicted on an unlicensed therapist charge in 2012.

    Late last month, an undercover detective went online and found an ad to an escort service. It led him to another Leesburg Pike apartment building, where a woman answered the door and accepted money for services. Several other officers moved in and arrested the woman.

    Qiuxiang Liu's name was found on the apartment's lease. A few days later, police tracked Liu down to another apartment, where they arrested her and took her into custody.

    They seized five cell phones, a laptop and several hard drives. In the warrant, a detective expressed desire to examine the evidence by going through the call history, messages and the address book.

    Liu is charged with prostitution and keeping or maintaining a bawdy place.
