Two more Sterling massage parlors lose licenses

Loudoun County authorities revoked business licenses from two massage parlors over the past week as part of an ongoing investigation targeting "bawdy" places in the county.

Aroma Therapy Massage and Massage Therapy, both of Sterling, joined Green Therapy Massage in losing their licenses after sheriff's officials with the vice-narcotics unit entered the businesses and found allegedly illegal activity.

Seung J. Oh, 38, of New York was charged with performing a massage without a license at Aroma Therapy at 22648 Glenn Drive last Tuesday, according to the Loudoun Sheriff's office.

And Sin Suk Cho, 47, of Pennsylvania, was charged with giving massages without a license and giving massages of a sexual nature at Massage Therapy, located at 47024 Harry Byrd Highway.

Nine others were arrested in April after a six-month investigation.

a six month investigation? thats a lot of happy endings!
personally, these types of business's do not appeal to me.
but i wouldnt want to deny anyone else the pleasure if they are so inclined.
i think the bar should be higher then just "bawdy" behavior.
unless there is outright obvious prostitution going on, I say leave these places alone.

Six months, who knows how much money, all just to take down two "massage" parlors? It's nice to know that Loudon has successfully ridded the county of all violent and property crime, freeing themselves up to tackle these obvious theats to public order.

The evidence in this case sounds pretty hard to beat.

Everywhere else still open without disruption.

Yet we can't seem to solve the immigration problem.

Maybe we're focusing on the wrong issues.

There are times when I could use some o' that "bawdy" action!

This whole issue rubs me the wrong way. With vocanic ash, illegal chat rooms and bars shortchanging drinks, the police should be concentrating on the real crime.

Do most of these places still advertise in the WaPo print sports pages?

There is always someone in government concerned that someone, somewhere, may be having a good time.
