Columbus Massage Parlors Shut Down

Last updated on Saturday, March 3, 2012

(COLUMBUS) - The Indiana attorney general’s office has shut down two massage parlors in Columbus.

Officials say they took the civil action because of unpaid sales taxes.

The businesses in question are Daily Spa and Ping Spa.

Prosecutors have charged four people with corrupt business influence and tax evasion. This comes after Columbus police served search warrants on both places seeking financial records.

The attorney general's office says the cases developed from an ongoing probe by Columbus police and code enforcers. They had been investigating complaints of alleged prostitution at both massage parlors.
