Braceville massage parlor raided for alleged prostitution

BRACEVILLE, Ohio - A massage parlor employee and a customer are allegedly caught engaged in a sex act, as Braceville Police officers raid the Rose Spa on route 5, near Interstate 80.

Braceville Police Chief Bill Garro tells 21 News that for the last six weeks his department has been investigating complaints of prostituion at the business.

"Upon our arrival they were served with the search warrant, and the officers that entered this business observed one of the employees and a customer engaged in a sexual act," Chief Garro says.

The customer appeared to have some axiety or breathing trouble while police were on the scene. Paramedics were called, but the male customer from Mansfield, Ohio, left on his own, without getting any major medical attention. Police will discuss with the prosecutor if the man should face charges.

It was back on July 3rd of last year when the same location was raided for a similar crime.

At that time the business known as the Four Seasons was raided by police, "It looked to be a different ownership group. These people are different than what we encountered the first time. However, it looks like it's the same type of activity going on here," Chief Garro says.

Along with conducting a search of the premises, authorities questioned four employees who were inside the business at the time of the raid, and they found several beds in the back of the building, making them question if human trafficking is somehow involved.

"It's hard to determine if they're living here. I found some beds back there, they do stay here for days at a time. But talking to several of the employees, they don't live here, but they will stay here several days a week," Chief Garro says.

Police boarded up the business and want to have it permanently declared a nuisance.

    TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Residents of a small Canadian island are being warned not to drink their well water because of potentially toxic algae in Lake Erie. The blue-green algae blooms causing the warning are the same stuff that contaminated the drinking water of about 400,000 people in the Toledo area earlier this month. Health officials say people who live on Canada's Pelee Island should stop bathing and cooking with the water from their private wells that draw Lake Erie. The Windsor-Essex Cou...More >>
