LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say they've arrested a Louisville man for promoting and permitting prostitution at his Jeffersontown business.
Police say a Jeffersontown massage parlor was offering more than back rubs. Detectives set up a sting after a tipoff, and quickly discovered some unusual signs.
There is nothing out of the ordinary about it -- just offices off Plantside Drive in Jeffersontown's Industrial Park. But police say what was going on in the suite was not the norm, and workers in offices nearby noticed it. "It's weird that you would open that kind of business in what was otherwise a light industrial park, that's what seems kind of odd to me," said one man who wanted to remain anonymous.
The man did not want to show his face on camera, but says he had seen a lot of activity in the parking lot recently. "I just noticed that there was a few girls that seemed to be working over there, and there were people guys generally just coming and going every so often."
There is not any signage on the building as to what the business is, but when you look inside the front door, you can clearly see some sort of massage table inside a room with various lotions and wipes on another table. "If you were opening a massage therapy business you would probably put a sign out from that says this is a massage therapy business. No sign on the door, no phone number, where are they getting their customers from?" asked the anonymous man.
Police say Thomas Huber was operating the business, and he got his clients online through www.backpage.com, a website similar to Craigslist -- and many of the massage services offered are erotic in nature. The ad for "Tranquil Garden" has been pulled off the site. An employee charged with prostitution told police the four women working inside were required to give half of all money earned to Huber.
Police say it is a sad sign of the times, and the women were using the money to support drug habits.
Police say Huber gave them permission to search his vehicle, and officers recovered a stolen .38 caliber handgun.
Huber was charged with promoting prostitution, permitting prostitution, receipt of stolen property and carrying a concealed deadly weapon.
He was arraigned in jailcourt Thursday, and a judge released him on his own recognizance.
