An investigation by Franklin Police has led to the execution of six search warrants at locations across Franklin.
An in-depth investigation, prompted by citizen complaints, into suspicious activity at the Oriental Massage Center located at 400 Sugartree Lane led to today’s operation. The owner, Guoku Hu, owns a second Franklin massage parlor, Capital Chinese Foot Spa Massage at 4149 Mallory Lane. Significant prostitution activity and other violations were uncovered at both locations during detailed surveillance operations.
Search warrants are currently being executed at both massage parlors, along with four Franklin apartments associated to the businesses. Today’s operation is being supported by Homeland Security, FBI, TBI, and the organization End Slavery Tennessee.
Several arrests in this case are anticipated today. A press conference has been scheduled for 11:15am at the strip mall located at 4149 Mallory Lane, across the street from Centennial High School.
