Some Redding massage parlors were targeted in a sting operation Wednesday for offering a bit more than a basic rub-down, according to Redding Police. RPD investigators were assisted by the Shasta County Sheriff’s Deputies, State Alcoholic Beverage Control agents and Redding Code Enforcement. Three businesses were visited and citations for prostitution were issued at all three. 48-year-old Yan Liu at AAA Massage on Hartnell Avenue next to Parson’s Junior High School, 59-year-old Zongu Wang at Forever Body Massage on Placer Street and 58-year-old Kim Buidang at Michelle Redding Spa on Hilltop Drive. The city council recently passed an ordinance to crack down on massage parlors. Police say code violations were found including prophylactics kept on site, nude masseuses and attempted acts of prostitution. More sting operations are in the works.
