Ala. massage parlor closed after pair of raids
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Birmingham's city council has voted unanimously to shut down a massage parlor that has been the target of two prostitution raids.
WBRC-TV (http://bit.ly/16G7mvn ) reports the council voted Tuesday to revoke the business license for Bali Spa, which was raided in March and April. Nine employees were arrested and charged with prostitution and drug-related offenses.
Chairman of the council's public safety committee Johnathan Austin says he wants the city to begin scrutinizing massage parlors in the same way bars and nightclubs are probed before they're granted a liquor license.
