A month after the former owner of a Lacey day spa was busted by police for not adhering to the township's so-called "same gender" ordinance, charges have been filed against the business's new owner as a result of observations by a police officer.

Quan Jing of the Green Spa, located on Lacey Road, was charged Monday with violating the same ordinance after Officer Michael Verwey observed various male customers enter the establishment for approximately 20 to 30 minute durations during the evening hours, police said in a statement.

The ordinance requires that a massage parlor not associated with a doctor’s office or physical therapist only provide same-gender massages, police said. A brief investigation revealed the the business was in violation of the ordinance, according to the statement.

Jing, a new owner and operator of the business, was served the summons and will be required to appear in Lacey Township Municipal Court.

In December, Stella Li, the spa's former owner, was charged with violating the same ordinance.

Though sometimes controversial, similar regulations have sprung up in cities across the country, designed at deterring prostitution and human trafficking associated with the massage parlor industry.

Lauren - exactly which casino are you speaking of? They have security that throws out prostitutes & homeless people as soon as they enter. There are thousands of casino workers in each building and you can't just assume they are all in on this stuff you say happens. Are you a witness? You should report it to the county prosecutor since you say all the cops are in on it too.
