BROWNSBURG — Authorities with the Brownsburg Police Department, in coordination with the Hendricks County United Drug Task Force and the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, recently executed a search warrant at a Brownsburg business that uncovered probable cause that the employees of the business were engaging in acts of prostitution, as well as erotic massages.
The “Relaxation Center” is at 20 Airport Road, Suite 1300.
On March 6, authorities served the warrant that was a result of an undercover sting that the Brownsburg Police Investigations Division began in December of 2011.
Bo Ding, 39, a female employee of the establishment, was arrested and charged with three counts of prostitution, class A misdemeanors.
The owner of the business by lease is Xaio Rui Li of Indianapolis, who has since been issued a notice of zoning violation from the Brownsburg Planning and Building Department, requiring that the
business “cease and desist immediately.”
Police say detectives discovered that at least one female employee had engaged in alleged acts of prostitution during the course of business hours and in lieu of business transactions that were
intended to be for therapeutic massage.
“This business met the definition for ‘sexually oriented business,’ which is not a permitted use within the C-3 Commercial Zoning District,” Brownsburg Director of Planning Todd Barker said.
Brownsburg Police Chief Michael Dove added, “This case falls in the wake of closing another sexually oriented business that was ultimately closed in June 2011. After an arrest was made, the town sent a notice of zoning violations to the business and its owner. That business closed within 10 days. It is unfortunate that these types of businesses exist at all, but they will certainly not be fruitful within this community.”
Ding bonded out of jail and is scheduled for an initial hearing in Hendricks Superior Court 5.
