These are the kinds of stories that you wouldn’t expect to heard about in Columbus. Unfortunately, prostitution is happening in our backyard. According to The Columbus Dispatch. Behind the Powell storefront — between a dentist’s office and a dessert shop — the women slept each night on massage tables.
Rarely, investigators say, did they appear to leave the Amsun Massage Spa, a business that caught the attention of Powell police not long after it opened last fall in a strip mall at 128 E. Olentangy St.
The women worked there. They ate there. They slept there. They might not have had a choice, authorities said.
Local, state and federal investigators announced yesterday that the massage parlor was a front for organized prostitution and was one of four addresses raided in Delaware and Franklin counties as part of Powell’s investigation. A parallel federal investigation resulted in searches of other addresses, although details of those raids were under court-ordered seal yesterday.
