HOUSTON At least six women were in custody Thursday after prostitution stings at three Houston-area massage parlors.

Precinct 4 deputy constables, assisted by Harris County deputies and the Harris County Fire Marshal s Office, raided the businesses Thursday afternoon.

All three parlors Royal, Empire and Crystal Relaxation are located in the Classic Station shopping center at Red Oak and FM 1960.

Investigators said most of the women who were arrested appeared to be under the age of 30 some as young as teenagers. One older woman, who investigators said may have been the supervisor, was also taken into custody.

Several other people at the parlors received citations.

Investigators said there have been a number of raids at the businesses in the past, and they were looking into whether any of the women may be victims of human trafficking.
