Prostitution by Massage
Investigators with the Morgan City Police Department Detectives and Narcotic Divisions began an investigation of a local Massage Parlor in the area of Brashear Avenue after information of alleged suspicious activity was received in February of 2023.
According to reports, investigators learned that the business was listed on multiple websites which are commonly used for escorts, massage parlors, and prostitution activity.
Investigators learned of a similar massage parlor connected to the one in Morgan City that was being operated in Thibodaux, LA. Investigators collaborated with investigators from the Thibodaux Police Department in a joint investigation.
On April 20, 2023, investigators from the Morgan City Police Department conducted an undercover operation. An undercover officer was sent into the business, where a massage was negotiated with the operator/masseuse of the business.
Yu Feng was later identified as the target of the investigation. During the course of the massage, Feng allegedly negotiated and offered additional services of a sexual nature for an added cost.
Investigators with the Morgan City Police Department with assistance from the St. Mary Sheriff’s Office entered the business. A search warrant was executed where additional evidence including ledgers and documents were obtained reportedly corroborating the illegal activity. U.S. Currency connected to this activity was located and seized.
Feng was arrested for Solicitation of Prostitution, Promoting Prostitution, and Prostitution by Massage. The investigation into the activity of the massage parlor is ongoing and additional arrests may follow.
Feng was transported to the Morgan City Jail where she was booked and now awaits court proceedings.
A similar operation was conducted by the Thibodaux Police Department regarding the massage parlor in their area that netted one arrest.
