Description of Incident:

The Broward Sheriff’s Office interrupted the work shift of over two dozen women throughout Broward County who were arrested for providing illegal services.

On Friday night, July 18, BSO detectives, assisted by the Florida Department of Health Division of Unlicensed Activities, conducted an operation dubbed “Red Light,” where they addressed numerous complaints of prostitution and unlicensed massages. For about a month, investigators followed tips and used other investigative tools to gather information on the suspects. Last Friday night they swarmed 15 locations, mostly massage parlors, and arrested 27 people for providing services not offered on the menu. Two of the women put out ads in local publications and provided the services out of their homes.
