(KLAS) Las Vegas police suspect an illegal brothel posing as a massage business was housing sex trafficking victims from across the country, the 8 News Now Investigators first reported Wednesday.
Lily A Reflexology is located on Tropicana Avenue and Jones Boulevard, according to business license records.
Wei Geng, the business owner, faces three counts of pandering, three counts of living from the earnings of a prostitute and one charge of an act encouraging a brothel, records showed. Police previously arrested Geng on a charge of soliciting prostitution in 2019, however, there is no criminal case filed in Las Vegas Justice Court.
