A prostitution sting on the city's Far Northwest Sie has also turned up numerous videotapes that may show years' worth of clients exchanging money for sex.The Cook County Sheriff's Office Thursday announced the arrest of Guo Yu, 53, in the 5400-block of North East River Rd. Yu was arrested after an undercover officer answered an Internet ad for a massage.

Officers who worked the sting reported numerous hidden video cameras and monitors around the apartment where the alleged prostitution took place. Police say they have already catalogued 30 hours of footage that allegedly shows male customers exchanging cash for sex.

Investigators are also trying to determine whether any of the tapes were used to further any other criminal activity against the customers. It is illegal in Illinois to videotape a person without their consent or to transmit live video of a person without their consent.
