SEBASTIAN – A lot more arrests Friday night involving men who live in Barefoot Bay and Sebastian in connection to the massage parlor prostitution case.
Sebastian Police Department, Vero Beach Police Department, and the Indian River County Sherrif’s Office are making arrests in association with the massage parlors that were raided on Tuesday. The charges include human trafficking, racketeering, and prostitution.
Below is a list of clients who were charged with prostitution after visiting the Sebastian and Vero Beach massage parlors. We will publish additional lists as they are made available. This list is Part 7.
Police said they first learned about the spa at Riverview Shopping Plaza by the health department. Next, they sent undercover officers in the business and found that the massage therapists were conducting prostitution.
During the investigation, officials discovered that the businesses were performing human trafficking, sex trafficking, and labor trafficking.
During a press conference on Thursday, Sheriff Deryl Loar said that each spa most likely grossed over $1 million a year in the massage prostitution ring.
We started publishing the prostitution arrests early Wednesday. You can also view them here:
