FORT COLLINS, Colo. — Two suspects have been charged in connection to massage parlors reportedly offering sexual services, according to Fort Collins Police Services (FCPS).

Investigators say they began investigating Fort Collins Chinese Foot Massage on Aug. 3, 2019, after a customer reported an employee attempted to provide sexual services.

The investigation led police to Touch of Heaven Massage, another business in the Riverside Shopping Center

Officers say they discovered that Timothy Vronay, 71, and Jingwen Liao, 56, were the owners of both businesses.

Officers say they also discovered that women working at the businesses were being moved between both locations to perform unlawful sexual acts on paying customers.

Officers served search warrants at both businesses and their Commerce City home on Sept. 19, 2019.

The suspects eventually turned themselves in to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, according to authorities.

Vronay is charged with the following:

  • Felony violation of Colorado Organized Crime Control Act
  • Felony pimping
  • Felony money laundering
  • Felony possession of a weapon by a previous offender
  • Two counts of misdemeanor keeping a place of prostitution
  • Misdemeanor pandering

Liao is charged with the following:

  • Felony violation of the Colorado Organized Crime Control Act
  • Felony pimping
  • Felony money laundering 
  • 2 counts of misdemeanor keeping a place of prostitution
