Police raid suspected prostitution houses in Greenbelt
Police raided three acupuncture and massage parlors in Greenbelt Friday, each of which they suspected were operating as houses of prostitution.
Members of the Metropolitan Area Drug Task Force (MADTF) and the Greenbelt Police Department conducted raids on businesses at 7743 Belle Pointe Drive, 7335 Hanover Parkway, Suite C & D, and 7525 Greenway Center Drive, Suite 116, in Greenbelt.
The search and seizure warrants served today were obtained after an ongoing investigation revealed illegal sex acts were being performed inside the businesses in exchange for money, police say. Currency was seized.
Two of the businesses had been previously raided by MADTF and Greenbelt Police last summer, but the businesses resumed their illegal operations, police say.
Charges are pending.
