We are part of The Trust Project

According to a statement from Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner, members of the Greenburgh Police Drug and Alcohol Task Force, Detective Division and Street Crime Unit completed a short term investigation into the Unauthorized Practice of a Profession occurring at several massage establishments within the township.

On September 2, 2016, detectives arrested four individuals for violating New York State Education Law 6512 (sub1) – Unauthorized Practice of a Profession (Class E-Felony).

The Greenburgh Town Board recently passed a local law that gave officials the authority to permanently close down establishments that continually employ unlicensed masseuses. The deadline for existing businesses to comply with the requirements of the local law is October.

The locations of the recent arrests are Jade Spa, 698 South Central Ave, Scarsdale and Charming Spa, 390 South Central Ave., Scarsdale.

The arrested subjects did knowingly and unlawfully purport themselves as licensed massage therapists without having the requisite state licenses. It was also noted that neither establishment had a licensed massage therapist present/working at the time of the arrests.

Town Building Department personnel assisted investigators and their investigation is ongoing.

All of the subjects were transported to Police Headquarters where they were booked, processed, and released on bail.
