Twice in a two-month span, a massage parlor in Central Ohio got shut down due to accused illegal sexual acts. This time it’s Purple Clouds Spa, located at 5322 North High Street.
The Columbus City Attorney and Franklin County Sheriff teamed up again to investigate a potential human trafficking ring.
“We’re going to continue aggressively going after these businesses that really are nothing more than illegal fronts for human trafficking and prostitution,” said Columbus City Attorney Zach Klein. “I want to thank the Franklin County Sheriff’s office for working with us on these cases, and hope that we’re sending a message to the rest of the bad operators out there: our task force is looking for you and if you don’t clean up your act, it’s only a matter time before we find you and shut you down.”
According to court documents obtained by 10TV, investigators obtained evidence that sexual conduct in exchange for money was happening regularly at the spa.
