DETROIT (WWJ) - Two women were arrested this week on charges they provided more than just massages.
WWJ’s Rob Sanford said the arrests were the result of a sting operation in West Bloomfield.
It all started when the West Bloomfield Police received reports that a massage parlor was being run out of a home on Detroit Boulevard. That in itself isn’t necessarily a crime. However, it was claimed the two female masseuses were treating more than just tired and score muscles.
An undercover officer went to the business and found that the claims had some grounds.
Township police Lt. Tim Diamond told The Detroit News the women, who were operating without a license to provide massages, had been running the business for about five months.
“She said she started out giving normal massages but her clients wanted more and when they didn’t get it, they never came back. So she adjusted with other services,” Diamond said.
Placed under arrest on charges of prostitution were a 27-year-old West Bloomfield woman and a 20-year-old Farmington woman.
The Oakland Press reports the pair had placed ads for their “massages” on a website called backpage.com.
