 GREENBURGH POLICE MAKE ARRESTS AT MASSAGE FACILITIES

INCLUDING PROSTITUTION

 TOWN BOARD TO HOLD SPECIAL MEETING TUESDAY MORNING TO VOTE ON SHUTTING DOWN FACILITIES THAT DO NOT COMPLY WITH LAW

Members of the Greenburgh Police Street Crime Unit, Drug and Alcohol Task Force and Detective Division completed a short term investigation into the Unauthorized Practice of a Profession and Prostitution occurring at numerous massage establishments within the township.  Earlier this week the members of the Greenburgh Town Board scheduled a special meeting for this coming Tuesday to rule on an appeal by certain massage facilities that could result in the closure of the massage facilities.  in 2015 the Town Board enacted legislation requiring massage establishments to be licensed by the town. These facilities may only be licensed if massage therapists are also licensed by NYS. All massage facilities are subject to background checks. The police help ensure that the facilities are hiring licensed therapists and that prostitution does not take place.  

 

On 3-10-17 members of the above units did arrest (4) suspects for violating NY State Education Law 6512 (sub1) - Unauthorized Practice of a Profession. A fifth suspect was arrested for violating NY PL 230.00 - Prostitution.  The arrested four subjects did knowingly and unlawfully purport themselves as licensed massage therapists without having the requisite state licenses.  The fifth suspect arrested did offer to engage in sexual conduct with an undercover police officer. All of the suspects were transported to Police Headquarters where they were booked, processed, and held for arraignment.   This is not the first time arrests have been made on Central Ave. The police have made arrests periodically for many years.  All the members of the Town Board are offended by the exploitation of women.
