Police Make Prostitution Arrest at Livermore Massage Parlor

Owner of Livermore Health Center scheduled for a business permit meeting with Livermore Police Chief Steve Sweeney on Monday.

A female was arrested Thursday afternoon on suspicion of prostitution at the Livermore Health Center, Livermore Police Officer Traci Rebiejo said.

The arrest is part of an ongoing investigation of suspected prostitution and pandering at the massage parlor on 2978 Pacific Ave., across the street from the .

Rebiejo was unable to provide the age or name of the female arrested.

The owner of the health center was cited for numerous city code violations, as was another masseuse working at the business, Rebiejo said.

It was unclear if the female arrested on suspicion of prostitution is a masseuse at the massage parlor.

A Friday afternoon call to the business seeking comment was unanswered.

The business boasts a five-star rating on Yelp and has four positive reviews.

Here's part of a review left in May 2011 by Yelp user Mark H:

This is absolutely my favorite place in the Tri-Valley to get a massage. I shopped around quite a bit in Livermore, Pleasanton, Dublin, and even San Ramon. I love this place!!! Each of the massage therapists here pretty much has her own technique so it's hard to pick a favorite, but they are all VERY good. Whether you're into soft touch, deep tissue, or somewhere in between, you'll find just what you're looking for here. They even do back-walking if that's what you need/want...

Wow some of you are really adamant about this happening. (leah/mvs). Daniel is right. I had to wait very long times, several different times for LPD to respond. (leah and mvs need to CHILL.

Livermore pd is a joke always has been. They are arrogant, and lazy. It used to be a police officer would wave as they drove by, stop and help change a tire, or at least make sure you were ok. Now it seems the only time you have any interaction with the Livermore pd is official business. Look at the sheriff's department, they for the most part, have class and treat people with respect. LPD should pay attention

Well what's that tell you about public opinion when an article about prostitution turns into a discussion about the local police department?

Police need tgo work on real crime .... drugs... gangs...dond bee lazy..
Patti June 02, 2012 at 01:14 PM
Back on topic ~ There are several massage parlors in town that have an unpublished "menu". LPD knows who and where they are ~ why they haven't gone in and shut them down is beyond me. One is just a block from an elementary school.

2 comments - 1st happy an arrest has been made at this massage parlor. It's important to call out others if u know more of the same is happening. #2 As far as negativity around the police, I know the frustration when they don't respond quick. I know of police cutbacks & there aren't enough cops to cover Livermore sufficiently. Placing blame is always easiest when you know nothing about the real issue. Bring this up at a city council meeting or contact the Chief if you want changes.

There is a large amount of prositution in the city of Livermore and the Tri-Valley as a whole. Just look at the websites myredbook, craigslist and backpage. Just search Livermore and you will see various sexual workers ready for work in this town. The prostitutes do what's called a circuit. They rotate hotel to hotel/city to city making their money. They use the nicer hotels off of N. Canyons as well as the lower end hotels in Springtown. Rooms can be had for cash and a drivers license. The massage parlors are not all loaded with prostitutes. The ones that do offer sexual services generally offer hand jobs - no oral sex or intercourse. In the massage parlor world, Livermore and the Tri-Valley are known as a tough place to get a happy ending. Although it's true it does happen, it's not as frequent as you may think after reading the above comments. It is my job to know the above information, it is not an admission of first hand experience.

LOL @ Mike - it's his job :-) No reason for everyone to get their panties in a twist - legalize, regulate, tax and protect the workers. It is indeed the world's oldest profession and will never go away.

"...2978 Pacific Ave., across the street from the Livermore Police Department." Sounds like someone didn't pay their hush money this month.

You seem to have a lot of knowledge about how our police spend their time. What do you do, follow them around? Why don't you sign up for the police academy, attend and listen, you might learn something.

My guess is your not a nymphomanic. Sex is dirty isn't it, and your not a dirty girl. Gotta go ... only one place left in town now ... where is Tequilas Taqueria located ? I have a doctors appointment Monday to get tested for STD's and later on that afternoon will see my annalist for my low self esteem issues. Patch bloggers crack me up !!! Only in America and you can vote in November too !
leah B June 02, 2012 at 05:16 PM
I am not going to chill because massage therapy is my profession and I take it very serious. Places like these, hold professional LMT's down. Here is a link to show you how it is all played out...and these are girls most likely holding a CMT license. http://www.chezstella.org/stella/?q=en/pamela&PHPSESSID=ee4d3567fd1428af8878c25d659c9554

Mvs you seem like you're in dyer need of one your self, rather uptight!
Jaime Roberto June 03, 2012 at 04:25 AM
And you know this how?
Steve June 03, 2012 at 07:11 AM
You are all idiots.I have seen 0 comments worthy of my consideration.Too bad.
Randy June 03, 2012 at 04:42 PM
Have been to Magic Touch, next to the comic book store, a few times in years past. They are all licensed therapists providing legal massage. If you don't know what you are talking about, please do not start nasty rumors about that which you know nothing about.
Randy June 03, 2012 at 04:59 PM
Wow. What a closed-minded, hate sex, prude you are. I never would have guessed that people like David Vitter and Charlie Sheen are suffering from low self-esteem just because they chose to pay for sex. What medical school did you get your psychiatry degree from?
Mike Rotch June 03, 2012 at 05:15 PM
I've had wonderful experiences with the Livermore Police Department, however none of them were adversarial. For those that are saying that they are 'arrogant, and lazy,' this is a great time to sell your home and move with homes for sale inventory at an all time low - the agents in town are starving, and I imagine there are cheaper places to live. if you're a renter, and there have to be more beautiful underpasses to camp under if you're a stinky psychotic vagrant.
Nathan21 June 04, 2012 at 03:55 AM
Darn Steve, I was just dying to hear what you had to say! All that knowledge and wisdom you must have. It must be frustrating to be such a superior human being! LMAO!!!
linda sacco June 04, 2012 at 06:22 AM
yes.. I agree with leah B ( somewhat)... When I attended Massage School the requirment was 500 hours to become a CMT.. it has changed over the last couple of years and I am contiuning my education to become certified .. I blame things like Craigslist that let these scum bags advertize massage when clearly advertizing sex...I blame the fricking idoits that cant take the time to figure out who to call to get off. New day people.. Chiropractors and doctors use and refer Massage Therapist to there clients... We are body workers that can help with many issues and give relief and help with stress........ I do not have 1000 hours in yet but I am not a dirty whore....so ease up a bit leah B

Interesting how this stuff kind of bootie tickles everyone lol Two things. 1- Prostitution is not going away, its been around for thousands of years. Crack down on the massage parlors, then it goes into peoples households and good luck on enforcing that. 2- Why do people worry about STDs, unless you're invovled in this stuff. Seriously, if you have a partner you don't need to worry.
Big M June 04, 2012 at 08:13 PM
Wow, all these comments so far and no "Different strokes for different folks" comments... How very disappointing of you all This article is akin to saying "We staked out the sole prostitute that walks downtown for months before we were able to make an arrest..." I bet if they spent as much time trying to solve some of the 13 break-ins/home invasions they would have the perps already. Oh well, i guess if you can get "big wins" by picking the low hanging fruit, go for it...
::thumbs up:: June 05, 2012 at 03:31 PM
And Steve has spoken. Bow down and worship him. Chump.
Toni Barbera June 05, 2012 at 08:02 PM
I can't believe there is more chatter about this topic than concern for the seeming increase of home invasions, robberies and auto break ins. People seeking out therapeutic and not sexual massages will gravitate to massage Envy and other legitimate establishments. Those seeking sexual places will find those too. If the sex trade were legal, taxed and regulated, we wouldn't be having this discussion. I say to each his or her own. Let's focus on issues that jeopardize our safety in this town.
Dee June 06, 2012 at 06:31 AM
There us a website that reviews and leads people to find the illegal activity....I went to it and found there is one next to a togos in Dublin, yuck, I wont be in that place again..oh the website is rubmap and it used to be you could just look and now you have to sign up. I dont know why you wouldnt have needed to before, this site was so bold....anyways i have nothing interesting to add..

Does your ignorance know no bounds
Rob August 28, 2012 at 11:25 PM
'Leah B' would have a valid complaint about protecting the integrity of CMTs without resorting to name-calling and unworthy talk. There should be a very clear separation being sex and massage. 'MVS' does not impress me with her attempts to 'protect the community' from consensual acts behind closed doors.

Marriages are happier. Families are calmer when Dad recieves a relaxing release of ALL his muscles before going home to hug his wife and kids. Too bad wives are too frigid to relax their hard working man with a hj or bj as a greeting coming home after work.
Jose Martinez March 05, 2013 at 08:11 AM
Damn straight Steve. If woman don't want their man sneaking around when they're suppose to be, "playing poker with the guys or working late." Then get off your high horses and put out and give a blow job on a regular basis. It's so pathetic when couples go on T.V. and say they only have sex a few times a month. That's what that number should be per week! Guys.....baby power the family jewels. Ladies .....douche at least once a month after PMS. I know wash clothes don't reach in there. Everyone is happy and no one has to sneak around. There's a saying. To keep a man happy you have to he a lady in the street,but a whore in the sheets. People won't like what i have to say but It's true. After you're done being mad,think about it.
Jen April 05, 2013 at 01:37 AM
Every person on here who says to legalize this crap and says that men need to go to "unwind" or whatever are nasty and probably pedophiles. Most of these girls are foreign born who are trafficked here and are threatened to be killed or families killed. Educate yourselves you sick f***s. ALSO..... most of these girls are underage, so congrats you are doing sexual things with someone's baby. Another thing..... I hope none of you have daughter's because you are so OK with this that you probably wouldn't give two craps if your own daughter was out there giving BJ's... you prob. wouldn't mind if she was making you money right? Most of these perv's who posted on here prob. sell their own kids to others for sex, drugs or money. You people make me sick and you are the reason this world is falling apart.
