DARIEN, Conn. – Police arrested three suspects Thursday on prostitution charges at Sunrise Health Therapeutic Massage in Darien.

The proprietor, Fu Xu, 49, of Elmhurst, N.Y., was charged with promoting prostitution, permitting prostitution and three counts of employing unlicensed massage therapists. Xiuguin Lu, 45, of Flushing, N.Y., was charged with two counts of prostitution and three counts of practicing massage without a license. Fenjiao Gao, 43, of Flushing, N.Y., was charged with interfering with a police officer and practicing massage without a license.

The Patrol Division developed information that patrons of Sunrise Health were being offered sex acts in exchange for money, police said. Darien police launched a four-month investigation, which involved undercover informants, the Connecticut State Police Statewide Organized Crime Investigation Task Force, and the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Police said the arrests led to the seizure of $4,500 in cash, which was in the establishment as well as a vehicle used to transport female employees.

Xu was held on a $5,000 bond, Lu was held on a $20,000 bond and Gao was held on a $1,000 bond. All three are scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 10.

Who wouldn't trade a trophy for this trash...

just_looking:

Four (4) month investigation, two charges of prostitution. Is this,really the best use of our resources? The other charges of unlicensed anything should take about a day

Broad River:

Interesting isn't it.that the Patrol Division developed information about patrons of Sunrise Health that were being offered sex acts in exchange for money that involved undercover informants over 4 months. The Connecticut State Police Statewide Organized Crime Investigation Task Force, and the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement also took four months. That's a lot of massaging !

Don't want to park your car ( another piece of their racket ) in Norwalk for an hour,.. while they work on your kinks? lol

If a guy wants to cheat on his wife he'll cheat on his wife. Theres alot more to todays deteriorating monogamous relationships than sex for hire. The victims here are often the prostitutes, something that would be different if it was a legal regulated trade. Legal & regulated is always safer than the black market.

jlevin:

Assuming there was no sex-trafficing (not necessarily a safe assumption, but also not suggested by the article), isn't this a victimless crime? I'm of the opinion that prostitution should be legalized, regulated, and taxed.

Broad River:

It is legal in some states, one at least. Here it's a crime. Dragging home AIDS to your wife, well there goes victimless. Paying for sex is also a crime. Then there is the adultery issue. All of these things lead to the deterioration of a monogamous relationship and the collateral damage are the children.
Legalize it. Maybe the casinos would be interested in licensing the prostitutes. I would venture to say they would be so much more attractive.Yet everything else about it remains unchanged.

Broad River:

I guess that's the happy ending to the story.
