Prostitution arrest seen as key in human trafficking investigation


Update@4:31 p.m.:

A recent prostitution arrest at a Miami Twp. massage parlor is expected to lead to further charges in a multi-county human trafficking investigation.

The overnight Friday raid resulting in the arrest of a 33-year-old woman at Jin Massage on 2179 Miamisburg-Centerville Road was a key development in the investigation that has been “ongoing for several months,” said Capt. Mike Brem of the to the Montgomery County RANGE Task Force.

“We would expect more things to happen in the case in the near future,” he said, noting later of the raid, “we were able to recover documents that will further our investigation.”

The arrest of parlor employee Jinxia Guo on promoting prostitution was the first in the investigation that focuses on a regional problem, Brem said.

Investigators recovered supporting documents from the parlor that substantiated allegations of sex and labor trafficking, Brem said, noting that an an anonymous tip led them to the parlor. They anticipate several arrests, but this is a difficult case because it involves different languages and cultures — and spans more than one county, he said.

Brem said he doesn’t think the massage parlor technically has to be closed.

First report:

We’re working to learn more about an investigation into alleged prostitution and human trafficking at a massage parlor in Miami Twp.

Authorities on Friday were at Jin Massage, 2179 Miamisburg-Centerville Road, and one person was arrested on suspicion of promoting prostitution.

Miami Twp. police assisted the Montgomery County RANGE Task Force in executing a search warrant at the business.

The warrant was part of an ongoing long-term investigation into human trafficking, according to a release from the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.

During the search, task force detectives “seized a large amount of evidentiary items related to the investigation,” according to the release.

The suspect, 33-year-old Jinxia Guo, was arrested on suspicion of promoting prostitution. She was released from the Montgomery County Jail on Saturday, according to jail records.
