Cumberland County Sheriff’s Investigators, working with federal and state law enforcement agents, raided the QT Spa for suspicion of prostitution activities. In the last few weeks, undercover officers were offered sexual favors for payment in the establishment by female workers. Working under a search warrant, authorities found sexual paraphernalia, documents, and large amounts of cash. A computer check revealed that the owner, 58 year old Chong K. Park, had been ordered deported in 2008. But he fled the area and is currently wanted for being a fugitive from another state. Massage parlors in Rockwood, Murfreesboro and Knoxville were also closed down.
