Spa shut down in prostitution probe

A West Bridgewater spa under investigation for allegedly being a site for prostitution has been shut down following a raid by police and Department of Homeland Security agents on Tuesday, West Bridgewater police said.

While an officer was undercover at the 888 Spa, he was offered sex for a fee, prompting the raid, police said.

Police said they had also inspected and fined the spa in July after developing evidence that the spa at 888 West Center St. was offering sexual activity between massages and operating without a proper license, police said.


Authorities interviewed employees, people believed to be the owners, and others after the recent raid. Both detectives and Homeland Security agents continue to investigate, police said.
