(Scroll down for video) Police busted a prostitution ring that was disguised as a massage parlor after the sewer became clogged with used condoms, according to police in Texas.
The Austin Police Department said that they have arrested a husband and wife after they were accused of running the prostitution business out of a facility that was set up like a massage parlor.
The suspects have been charged with engaging in organized criminal activity and money laundering. They were booked into the Travis County Jail.
A judge has set bail for the husband at $53,000 and the wife’s bail has been set at $45,000.
According to the police investigation, Joseph Emery, 54, and Juan Wang, 49, leased a property at 11416 N. Farm to Market 620, where they set up Jade Massage Therapy.
The couple advertised sexual services on backpage.com. After being charged $60 for each massage, men paid between $40 and $120 for sexual services.
One day, the sewer in the area of the business became clogged, and workers found many used condoms in the pipes. Police took out a search warrant and raided the massage parlor, where they found two naked men and three women.
The men admitted to police that they received sexual services in exchange for cash.
