According to a police news release, three of the women were arrested for appearing nude in a public place, two of whom were also caught for employment and immigration-related offences. Another five women were arrested for suspected drug-related offences, the release said.
Seven of the women were Vietnamese and one was Malaysian. Investigations against all the suspects are ongoing.
