Hickory police raided a massage parlor allegedly serving as a front for a prostitution ring. Officers had been tipped off by residents complaining that Sun Spa at 3159 U.S. 70, SE, across the street from Hickory Motor Speedway was offering more that legal massages.
Following a two-month investigation by Hickory’s Vice/Narcotics Unit, an undercover officer went inside the business. One of the employees solicited him for prostitution. He said he didn’t have enough money and left, said Sgt. Patrick Clark of the Hickory Police Department.
After the officer left, about seven Hickory and Long View officers went inside and found three Korean women inside. The woman who’d offered sex, Soo Kyun Kim, 59, of Los Angeles, was arrested and charged with prostitution and practicing massage without a license. Her bond was set at $1,000 secured.
Myong Suk Lucas, 64, of Clarksville, said she was just a house keeper, according to the police report. She was arrested and charged with maintaining a place for prostitution. Her bond was set at $500 secured.
Son Ae-Choe Burris, 53, of Fayetteville, told officers she was a legitimate masseuse. They asked to see her license. She didn’t have one, so she was arrested and charged with practicing massage without a license. Her bond was set at $1,000 secured.
The women lived in the business. They were brought into Hickory for a couple weeks before moving on to similar businesses in other cities, Clark said.
“We have contacted Sun Spa’s owner and hopefully they’ve shut down their operation,” he said.
