Employees of a Lafayette massage parlor are under investigation for prostitution after customers told police they paid for sexual favors there, according to a search warrant. On March 4, officers saw a man park his car in front of a nearby bowling alley, then walk to the massage parlor. Detective David Self stopped the man when he left an hour later.
A week later, an officer contacted another man leaving the business. When officers searched the business March 17, they recovered passports, a digital camera, paperwork and thousands of dollars in cash, according to court documents. Tommy Sloan said the task force hopes to issue arrest warrants for two employees in the next few weeks.
Well, none of those items are suspicious. Did they send a detective in pretending to be a regular customer? So all they have are a couple guys stupid enough to admit something happened?
Is that even enough to prosecute a case? A at risk of going under.
He now lives in a mansion with his millions. It seems like the cops watch the wrong guys. Is it really any of the cops business on that stuff?? Maybe after the nice massage, I am walking over to the convenience store to get me some crisps. Lots of illegal activity in that move too. Worry about more important stuff. Better with a masseuse than with a street walking wh0r3, I suppose….
Are these the same cops who tased and subsequently killed a dope growing twentysomething? I think these people stumbled on to a great way to sell overpriced Peleton condos! Could have been apprehending speeders on The City needs the money ……. What a waste of my tax dollars.
Is this an important crime to squelch? Catch some speeders, send some illegals home, keep an eye on wasteful lazy government workers and have them fired. Hold let me grab a pen…. Aaahhhh all right,see ya,I got to goooo to the aaahhhh library!
Why is this a issue? The laws are out of touch with humanity! Let it go! You would think adding stimulus to the massage industry would help….
Every month I pay child support, I tell my ex to give me a happy ending……but that is why we got divorced… there was no happy ending. Really who cares if someones is getting a hand job at the end of their massage? Make that 21 trunestad. You know, I think there are places in Boulder with similar stimulus packages.
Not as interesting but much more lucrative. Does this really represent the best interest of the people? This is somewhere between littering and jay walking in my view. Our tax dollars at work.
Way to go! You really protected us there. What is the Drug Task Force doing going after this?
If they have time to sit outside massage parlors and harass confessions out of citizens for such minor crimes, I would say that they should their funding cut. Yes, these are the same people that screwed the pooch and killed an 18 year old kid who was walking by some pot plants.
In that case no one ever proved or even could come close to claiming this kid had anything to do with the plants except that he saw them and showed a friend. The Lafayette cops are worthless.
Police chief Schultz is clueless and even worse, the city council tends to rubber stamp anything Schultz asks for. If you are ever in trouble, call the fire department, not the cops. The cops are a bunch of whiny pigs who claim they are brave.
They are a bunch of wimps who have tunnel vision and not a lot of common sense. Let me rephrase that… MOST of the cops are a bunch of wimps who are more dangerous to Lafayette than the criminals. There are a few good ones, but they are drowned out by the many bad ones. We really need to take a good hard look at these types of crimes to begin with.
What a total waste of money. And you people tell me that I am wrong when I tell you that the police spend their time browsing parking lots taking random potshots looking for criminals. It tells you in the first sentence that this was the Boulder County Drug task force. They are independant of the Lafayette PD and operate under a different command.
Read first and then comment. If ever there was a victimless crime, this has got to be it. Can we focus less on peeps getting a little handy j and more on catching rabid coyotes who are killing precious precious canines! The Laf-a-lot Police Department is the most over-the-top over-zealous, ineffective and misdirected police department I have ever seen. They would rather chase non-violent crimes over violent crimes, intimidate citizens in their own yards, and create a repressive environment.
They literally add no value to the community.
The citizens should run a special election to disband the department, and outsource city law enforcement to the county sheriff and state police, who are professional and measured in their approach. Ask anyone who lives in Laf-a-lot and they have a story of an over zealous misdirected keystone cops situation.
Scotty is a good cop, and while there may be a few other good ones as well, they are being lead in completely the wrong direction. Lafayette deserves better.
Citizens of Lafayette — speak up, stand up, mobilize and elect leadership you deserve. Or…is that what you have already done? I park my car over at Target and then walk over to Bed, Bath and Beyond. That must surely mean I am getting a blow job there.
After all, what else would I be doing since I parked at one business and went to another instead. All of them. No cop is just going to be watching a business and then start stopping people for parking next door. Even if someone gave them a tip of something suspicious. And then those people just confess to getting sex?
Just right there in the parking lot because some cop asked? Now I know where to find the cops when the bums are shooting up in the library bathroom. I used to work at this massage parlor and I did not have a happy ending. This sort of thing goes back to the beginning of time, people. There are always going to be bordello type houses, there are always going to be ppl willing to pay for it, and ppl willing to get paid to do it.
Well done, Task Force. A good friend of mine was racially profiled and arrested on bogus charges such as an expired tag.
Approached a parked vehicle with no just cause and claimed to have smelled drugs. I have numerous s of people I know who have been harassed or racially profiled. I even was told this at a hair salon from the girl cutting my hair in Lafayette several months ago. I had enough of it and even had to move out of Boulder county to keep my sanity.
