VANCOUVER, Wash. (KOIN) — Police in Vancouver served a search warrant at a massage business on Tuesday.
Investigators said they were looking into forgery allegations related to licensing documents of the therapists who work at Nancy’s Studio located at 218 W 13th Street.
No one was arrested during the search.
People who walked by the business had also complained about possible illegal activity, suspecting the massage therapists were not properly licensed, said police.
While the building bears no sign with Nancy’s Studio written on it, it does have signs advertising for massage and spa services. The Columbian, a daily newspaper in Vancouver, said their archives revealed that Nancy’s Studio was issued a license by the city for beauty, back and foot massage in December.
Previously, archive documents showed the address was licensed for a business called Foot Massage.
A business at 218 W 13th Street appears on a sexually oriented website that contains client reviews detailing sexual services allegedly provided for “tips.”
