A Palm Desert woman who was arrested on prostitution charges was out on bail Thursday.

Xiaozhen Xhang, 61, was arrested in La Quinta.

Xiaozhen Xhang, 61, was arrested Wednesday when the Riverside County Anti-Human Trafficking Task Force served a search warrant at a location in the 78-000 block of Highway 111 in La Quinta, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.
