Spring, Texas – October 22nd, 2015: After receiving complaints from local business owners, Investigators with Harris County Pct. 4 Constable Mark Herman’s Office with the assistance of the Harris County Pct. 1 Constable’s Office conducted an investigation at Spring Reflexology in the 3300 block of Spring Stuebner Rd.

Undercover officers entered the business and were offered massage services and sex acts for a fee.  In addition to the sex acts offered for a fee, the business was offering massage services without a license; therefore the business was deemed to be a massage parlor, which is prohibited in Harris County.

Under the Harris County Sexually-Oriented Business Ordinance, the business and the defendants failed to obtain a Sexually-Oriented Business permit.   Two adult females were arrested and charged with 3 violations each; Prostitution, Violation of the Harris County Sexually Oriented Business Regulations (Participating/Engaging in Prohibited Business), and Violation of the Texas Occupations Code (Providing Massage in Prohibited Sexually Oriented Business).

“One of many goals in these investigations is to separate legitimate massage businesses from the ones conducting illegal activity and hold those persons accountable.”  “Often times these businesses conducting unlawful activities open up in strip shopping centers beside restaurants and other legitimate businesses where families frequent.’  We will continue these efforts and to the best of our ability attempt to root out these illegal establishments in our communities.” Constable Mark Herman
