Two females arrested by Murfreesboro Police at local massage parlor’s, have plead guilty in a Rutherford County court of law for impersonating a licensed professional.
Duan Hong and Meihong Su pleaded guilty to impersonating a licensed professional on Monday before Judge David Bragg. The two women were arrested late last year during a police sting at two massage businesses. Investigators began looking into the businesses after complaints of illegal sexual activity and impersonation of licensed professionals at the locations.
In 2013, lead MPD Detective David Harrison, in cooperation with the TBI, obtained search warrants for “Health Massage” located at 925 South Church Street and “Chinese Therapeutic Massage” located at 1520 Memorial Blvd. Additionally, a Rutherford County court ordered the business “Health Massage” closed and the operators restrained from accessing the property under the public nuisance law.
The search warrants were executed and resulted in the seizure of evidence at each location. Additionally, almost $8,000 in cash and $36,000 from a bank account were seized from the “Health Massage” and $11,000 in cash from “Chinese Therapeutic Massage.”
Looking back to the original case, one person was arrested on four counts of “Promoting Prostitution” and two people were charged with “Impersonating a Licensed Professional” at the “Health Massage” location.
