Arrests Made for Illicit Activities at Local Business

Last Updated 4/3/2024In Police News, Latest City News

On March 28, 2024, the Statesville Police Department's Narcotics Division conducted a successful operation resulting in the apprehension of individuals involved in the solicitation of prostitution at Breeze Spa, located at 226 Signal Hill Drive in Statesville.

Following numerous complaints from citizens in October 2023, the Statesville Police Department launched an investigation into suspected illicit activities at Breeze Spa. Reports indicated instances of inappropriate touching and solicitation for sexual acts during massages. Responding to these concerns, undercover investigators were deployed multiple times, each time encountering propositions for sexual services in exchange for payment.

During the course of the investigation, it was discovered that the owner of Breeze Spa also operated A-1 Spa in Monroe, NC. Collaborating with the Monroe Police Department, authorities discovered similar activities at A-1 Spa, subsequently renamed Yan Spa, indicating a coordinated operation across locations. Even after the apparent sale of both businesses, undercover operations revealed that the illicit activities persisted.

On March 28, 2024, the culmination of the investigation led to the arrest of three individuals associated with Breeze Spa. Mei Qun Hu, 54, identified as the manager, was charged with Felony Promotion of Prostitution and unlicensed massage therapy. Juhua Wan, 46, was charged with Solicitation of Prostitution and unlicensed massage therapy, while Hong Du, 60, was charged for practicing massage therapy without a license.
