On Thursday, July 18, the Secaucus Police Department assisted the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office in an investigation of a massage parlor on Route 3 in Secaucus. During the inquiry, a 52-year-old female was taken into custody and charged with a count of allegedly engaging in prostitution, according to a release distributed by town officials.
The spa was then ordered closed by personnel from the Secaucus Office of Inspections as alleged municipal code violations were discovered involving at least two other employees, the statement said. It went on to say that the spa will remain closed until the Secaucus Board of Health conducts a hearing regarding these alleged violations.
“ … We are fortunate to have the assistance of the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office to engage in police action such as this to make both the town of Secaucus and Hudson County a safer place to live,” said Mayor Michael Gonnelli. “I am hopeful that the Prosecutor’s Office will continue these types of investigations in cooperation with our police department. … ”
