Despite raids, illegal massage parlors remain in operation

Yang Wang, of the Houston Chronicle, found a number of massage parlors remain open despite repeated police raids for vice crime and licensing violations. In Houston, “292 establishments have been cited by police for compliance violations, including operating without a state license, hiring unlicensed workers, operating during prohibited hours or engaging in vice crimes.” Vice officers have arrested 23 women for agreeing to sex dates on 14 visits to one non­descript establishment over the past two years, yet the business is still open.
