    A June 23rd raid by the Brownsburg police department led to an arrest for prostitution. Police served a warrant at iMassage located at 818 E. Main St, in Brownsburg on a probable cause that the business was engaging in acts of prostitution as well as erotic massages.

    An investigation by Brownsburg police led to the probable cause warrant. The owner of the business, Yan He Wang told detectives that he employed five to six girls at the location and that some of his employees had lived within the business.

    When the BPD executed the search warrant it was obvious that a female employee, identified as Yi Tan had been living there. Yi Tan had previously engaged in the act of prostitution during an undercover sting operation.

    The business had a kitchenette, but no stove. It had two bathrooms that had sinks and toilets, but no shower or bathing quarters. It appeared that the female employee had been bathing in the bathroom sink. Also, the business uses sheets and towels and it appeared that they were being hand washed in the sinks and then hung on hangers to air dry, as there were no laundry facilities on the premises.

    Yi Tan, was issued a criminal summons and charged with Prostitution. The investigation into the business owner, Yan He Wang continues. The business has been closed since the search warrant has been served, However, Mr. Wang has not been charged him with any criminal acts.

    The Town of Brownsburg Director of Planning, Todd Barker, stated that this business met the definition for “Sexually Oriented Business”, which is not a permitted use within the C-3 Commercial Zoning District”. The Town of Brownsburg Planning and Building Department issued a Notice Of Zoning Violation to Yan He Wang requiring that he cease and desist. The State Board of Health will also be contacted.
