Police have identified the other three locations targeted in raids today as Daily Massage on Gallatin Rd., ABC Massage on Franklin Rd., and Acupressure Treatment Center on 4th Ave. S.:

In 2002, illegal massage and adult entertainment businesses were targeted en masse by Nashville law enforcement. Now Mayor Karl Dean was serving as Metro’s law director at the time, and oversaw the closing of more than thirty Nashville businesses for prostitution.
