A Warren tanning salon suspected of running a prostitution ring is now closed. East Bay RI is reporting that the closure follows a month’s long undercover police investigation.

“I’m at a loss for words that something like that was happening in our neighborhood,” said Kirk Andrews.

The paper citing police who tell them customers couldn’t even get a real tan from the business which advertises spray tanning, facials, body works and body waxing on their sign.

“It’s pretty disgusting, I think,” said Arthur Samson.

Many who live nearby tell ABC 6 News they didn’t suspect anything out of the ordinary.

We did speak with one nearby business owner who says he’s not surprised to hear what was going on. He didn’t want to be identified, but says he saw a lot of suspicious activity at the tanning salon including women wearing lingerie.

The Salon closed down sometime last month. Its website has been taken down.
