Woman arrested for running illegal massage parlor in Atascocita

October 3, 2018

Harris County Precinct 4 Constables arrested Nancy Camacho,54, for operating an illegal massage parlor on the 7200 block of Lonesome Woods Trail in Atascocita on Wednesday.

For the past several months constable deputies have been receiving complaints about an unusual amount of traffic from a residence on Lonesome Woods Trail.

Precinct 4 Constable Mark Herman initiated an undercover investigation and later discovered an illicit massage parlor was being operated at the residence.

The residence was close to Atascocita Middle School.

Clients have given written statements to undercover investigators that more than massages would take place.

Camacho was arrested and charged with operating a massage parlor without a license and booked into the Harris County Jail. Her bond is set at $1,000.

Herman said there could be more charges added later on and the case is still under investigation.

“These type of businesses, either as a store front or in a neighborhood, have been proven to bring additional crime into the area. This one is especially troubling due to its close proximity to Atascocita Middle School and the hours of operation coinciding with the kids walking to and from school in front of the residence,” Herman said. “We will not tolerate these types of activities in our neighborhoods and near our schools and will do all we can to ensure those who bring them in are punished to the full extent of the law.”
