Massage parlor shut down for prostitution
EZ Massage at 603 12th Street was shut down Tuesday after police busted the business with an undercover operation. A female massage therapist, Yongju Wu, 47, of San Gabriel was arrested on suspicion of solicitation of prostitution, a misdemeanor.
The Paso Robles Police Department conducted undercover investigations on Nov. 26 of several massage businesses in Paso Robles suspected of engaging in prostitution. The operation was prompted by local business and citizen complaints of suspected illegal activity.
At the conclusion of the undercover operation, EZ Massage was ordered to cease business operations after the arrest of its employee. The goal of the undercover operation was to ensure that the massage employees were not engaged in prostitution, were state certified in massage therapy, had business licenses, and the businesses were operating in sanitary conditions.
