INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Authorities have raided a massage parlor on the northeast side of Indianapolis.

At around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, the Models Massage parlor at 7409 Shadeland Ave was raided by several agencies.

The lead agency involved in the raid is the Human Trafficking Vice Unit. IMPD’s North District FLEX Team and Nuisance Abatement team was on-scene as well.

Authorities say the raid stems from a covert operation that started at the beginning of the year, and a search warrant for probable cause was obtained prior to the raid.
