Dead body found at Miami University

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.

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