MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - Murfreesboro police have shut down two massage parlors following charges of prostitution.

According to WTVF-TV, the businesses were closed Friday night.

Kiran Han was arrested on four counts of promoting prostitution. Duan Hong, Chong Junkins, Meihong Su and Sarah Yi were all arrested for impersonating a licensed professional.

A jailer at the Rutherford County Detention Center told The Associated Press on Sunday that all the women made bail Saturday night.

Investigators say they know this kind of illegal activity goes on in other Murfreesboro businesses, and that the busts are just the tip of the iceberg.

"The customers going in there knew that they can go in there and ask for these things, the sexual favors," said Kyle Evans with the Murfreesboro Police Department.

Police say it's the first time businesses have been shut down in Murfreesboro as a result of a police investigation into prostitution.
