Additional raids on Asian massage parlors

Greg Fraase apparently wasn’t involved in the ownership of two massage parlors raided on April 11. And unlike the February raids of Fraase’s properties, which were conducted by the FBI, the recent raids were handled by the Springfield Police Department.

A news release from the police department said search warrants served at Golden Relax at 452 South Grand Ave. W. and 88 Relaxing Massage at 526 South Grand Ave. W. were “the result of an investigation into the allegations of prostitution occurring at both locations.”

The news release added: “There have been no arrests at this time, however the investigation into these establishments and others are ongoing. The Springfield Police Department will continue to monitor these type of establishments within the city.”

Illinois Times tried to reach the building owners of the two sites but received no response to notes left at the home addresses of property owners listed in county records. The home address of Xiaolin Ding is listed as 452 South Grand Avenue W. The home address of Xiaoguang Zhang, owner of 526 South Grand Ave. W., is listed in the 3400 block of Panther Creek Drive.
