By Meymo Lyons

The Loudoun County sheriff's office says it has made nine arrests after a six-month investigation into the Green Therapy massage parlor in Sterling, Virginia. Working off tips from wary neighbors, police raided the Green Therapy massage parlor.

Owner Mi J. Kwon of Potomac Falls was charged with maintaining a bawdy place and allowing massages to be performed without a valid permit.

Two female employees face charges of performing massages without a valid permit and a third woman was charged with willfully touching or fondling a client. Authorities also charged four northern Virginia men and one Maryland man for frequenting a bawdy place.

The sheriff's office says it continues to investigate Green Therapy's activities.
