Deerfield-News. com-Deerfield Beach,Fl-
Deerfield Beach is a city rampant with Rub N Tug massage parlors. Many of these stores are leased out by the Batmasian company Investments Unlimited. Now, I know it is the world’s oldest profession, but these businesses are connected to human trafficking in many cases. Getting back to the Batmasian’s they are friends of Boca’s former Mayor and a large campaign contributor to Deerfield Beach Mayor Ganz. They own more shopping centers with Rub n tugs than anyone in the Palm Beach or Broward County area.
Here is the report from BSO-
- BSO Case Number:
- Deerfield Beach
- Place of Occurrence:
- Yu Wen Inc., 186 N. Federal Highway, Deerfield Beach
- Shujuan Kolson, 56, 5/12/65, female, 4281 Marina Way, Deerfield Beach
The Broward Sheriff’s Office Deerfield Beach Crime Suppression Team (CST), in coordination with BSO’s Strategic Investigations Division (SID) and representatives with the United States Probation Office (USPO), arrested Shujuan Kolson following the conclusion of Operation Breaking Chains.
Operation Breaking Chains was a statewide effort spearheaded by the Florida Sheriffs Association Task Force in June, which focused on reducing human trafficking throughout the state and prosecuting those responsible for trafficking individuals.
According to investigators, on Wednesday, June 16, BSO’s Deerfield Beach CST made contact with Kolson while conducting an inspection at Yu Wen Inc. (dba Oriental Massage) located at 186 N. Federal Highway in Deerfield Beach. During the inspection, deputies determined Kolson was unlawfully practicing healthcare without a license at the business.
A follow-up investigation conducted by BSO’s SID Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) unit, the Florida Department of Health, Homeland Security Investigations and USPO concluded that Kolson was in violation of an active federal probation for charges related to bringing in and harboring aliens.
Through close coordination with USPO, BSO’s ICAC unit prepared and obtained a probable cause affidavit, and Kolson was taken into custody on Tuesday, Aug. 17 for unlawfully practicing healthcare without a license. A United States Marshals hold was then placed on Kolson on Wednesday, Aug. 18 for violation of her federal probation.
Investigators say prosecution efforts will be coordinated with the Broward State Attorney’s Office and the United States Attorney’s Office.
