COSTA MESA (AP) — Authorities say seven massage parlors in one Costa Mesa business complex are accused of being fronts for prostitution.

KNX 1070’s Bill Cooper Reports

Police Lt. Mark Manley says officers served search warrants Friday at Relax Zone, Super Day Spa Massage, Angel Massage, Fantastic Spa, Rainbow Spa, A1 Oriental Massage and Visage Spa.

Manley says it appears the parlors appear to be part of a “commercial brothel.”

There were no arrests. All the businesses have been given notice that their licenses will be rescinded within 30 days.

The Los Angeles Times says the parlors are bundled into a small facility alongside three marijuana dispensaries and a pizza parlor.

    Government outrage. ha ha…They show outrage at what they have been doing to the taxpayer for years. I say, tax the parlors, that way you can get off our backs, sort of speak!

  7. Donald says:

    dammit, no I have to go to “Sunny Day Massage” and “Happy Fortune Acupuncture” instead!

  8. dude says:

    oh please. the cops don’t have anything better to do? going after law-abidding citizens who just want to get stoned and get a hand job? seriously they are not violating any one’s rights. Why not just legalize and tax these businesses instead of wasting our time and money going after people who aren’t criminals. It’s cowardly, antiquated law that is doing nothing good for society.

  9. tyson says:

    People are making a living …..Leave them alone. I am sure some of the police offices when they’re off duties they enjoy themselves in there as well.

  10. John says:

    1. KMA says:

      Not nearly as tasty as the hair pie

  14. Matt says:

    Lay these cops off. We don’t have money to pursue victimless crimes. The way to handle brothels is to make sure they’re paying their fair share of taxes.

  15. daf says:

    unless these girls were working against their will then i would say leave them
    alone, they provide a service between consenting adults and god bless them for that.

  16. CA Lawyer says:

    Typical American government. They claim to be “the land of the free” but that is 110% BS. Only ultra-conservative morons are concerned about these “crimes”. WHAT TWO CONSENTING ADLUTS DO BEHIND CLOSED DOORS IS THEIR BUSINESS. Every massage parlor has or will in the future have employees who will offer a sex act in exchange for money. This is a waste of tax-payer money. Point being, trying to stop massage parlor employees from having sex with customers is like trying to stop drivers from speeding – NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN!

  17. stopharassingtaxpayers says:

    hey – wait a minute – these people pay taxes… they have business licenses so they must be reporting their income to the IRS…

    I sure hope the tax paying citizens stop getting arrested… keep that up – and nobody will be left in this country to pay taxes…

    no wonder the USA is bankrupt !!!

    The whole system is messed up.These owners obviously did not comply with the new “Tax increases” by the vice squad.So they played there hand and lost.The existing shops revenuewill increase and they will pay the tax or suffer the consequenses.Vice squad shakedowns are part of the sex racket.

  19. Lobo says:

    easy to fix, give them cops a free massage with happy ending

  20. JAB says:

    Legalize all of it- Including prostitution. Just tax it so our poor old uncle can get his cut.
