  1. Well at least they caught this aspiring Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell. sounds like a good bust.

    Any luck on the massage spas, or are all of those still being swept under the rug and ignored by law enforcement.

    1. Oh, well, you know, commerce and all. Plus it’s only affecting women, so why should they care? Lack of response makes me sick.

  2. This place is a $hi!hole and eyesore. Witnessed drug use in the parking area while just while parking at GOGs Gourmet. Hopefully, good-by and good riddance. Well done CSPD – thank you!
