KRDO -- An arrest affidavit obtained by 13 Investigates reveals the Rose Spa massage parlor owner accused of keeping a place of prostitution owns another illicit spa in Colorado Springs. Police said they had enough probable cause evidence gathered to arrest the Rose Spa owner, year-old Xinan Xia, on charges of pimping, money laundering, and keeping a place of prostitution.
CSPD investigators said no women were arrested in the sting and are pd to be victims of human trafficking. Xia also owns Energy Day Spa on N. Carefree Drive, according to court records. Energy Day Spa also has a lengthy history of sexual reviews posted online about the parlor.
According to CSPD, detectives began an investigation into the Rose Spa massage parlor in May, after receiving numerous tips about acts of prostitution being offered to customers. Police served a search warrant at the spa in July.
It wasn't the first time Rose Spa has been in trouble for prostitution. Police noted in the affidavit that they made similar arrests back in Sometimes no break. No time off but I feel very tired.
I want time off," one of the women told a detective when asked if she had days off. So that's a considerable certainly for our city," Lt. Trainer said.
Yesterday would be a perfect example to ensure that we do in-depth cases, solid cases where individuals are being arrested for felony crimes as opposed to the misdemeanors. To hopefully to deter any of the other businesses that would be doing the same kind of activity," Trainer said. City Council President Richard Skorman told 13 Investigates the city is working on getting these illicit spas shut down for good.
Skorman said the city initially tries to work with property owners to evict them. A Colorado Springs public nuisance ordinance can be used to kick the spas out if they have two incidents of prostitution. However, Skorman said he wasn't sure how many times the ordinance had been enforced against the spas.

Soooo a prostitute is now a victim??????? If held against her will, more like a prisoner sex slave.
I hope this scum bag rots in a tiny little cell. Kudos to KRDO for shining a light on these scum bags.
This article is extremely biased. Those woman could be offering sex service behind the owner.
In that case, the owner could be a total victim facing those charges and causing him to lose his hard built business. A small business like this, with the pandemic going on, however, the owner still manages to pay his employees, providing dirt cheap room and board to help those woman out.
I think he is doing a great deed. By Chelsea Brentzel.
