Another Forsyth County massage parlor shuttered

Another massage parlor reportedly operating illegally in Forsyth County has been shut down. Sheriff’s officials said after Image TLC Massage opened recently and failed to obtain proper permitting, deputies showed up to check the business.

They said an employee who attempted to run was quickly collared and that following a look-see, deputies issued multiple citations. Investigators said they turned up evidence of employees living inside the business, standard beds being used instead of massage tables, and what they said were other signs of illicit activity.

Deputies earlier this month raided 15 other massage parlors thought not to be in compliance with tightened regulations that went into effect Jan. 1. Ten of them were cited and five were closed.
