When you're using a business as a front for crime, at least make sure you're selling something people would actually BUY.
There's a business in San Antonio that was registered as a CANDLE SHOP, but it caught the attention of other business owners nearby . . . because the vast majority of its customers were MEN. And, well . . . men don't buy candles.
They also noticed the staff would sometimes lock the front door after a customer went in. So police investigated, realized the store was actually offering spa treatments . . . and discovered it was a front for a PROSTITUTION RING.
The two men running the brothel were arrested late last year. One of them took a plea deal and got five years. The other has his sentencing hearing next month, and could be looking at TEN years in jail.
