City officials closed down a massage parlor on Friday after they got a tip that prostitution was taking place inside.

Police received information that acts of prostitution were occurring at the Oriental Wellness Spa, located in the 7500 block of Glenview Drive, according to a Richland Hills Police Department news release.

Investigators issued a search warrant and were able to identify a suspect who possibly subjected employees at the spa to sexual exploitation, the release said. Investigators are now trying to identify potential human trafficking victims, the release said.

Richland Hills code enforcement officials have withdrawn the business’ certificate of occupancy and ordered the business to remain closed.

Officials with the McLennan County Sheriff’s Office assisted in the investigation, the release said.



Arlington Police are looking for these 10 fugitives. Crime Stoppers will pay up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest. Call 817-469-8477.
