AUSTIN, Texas — Police say they cracked a Texas prostitution ring after they were called to a massage parlor about drainage pipe clogged with hundreds of condoms, KXAN reports.

A police affidavit filed Tuesday said investigators learned that Jade Massage Therapy was operating in a shopping strip in northwestern Austin after the realty company that had just taken control of the property. The company grew suspicious of the activities of a tenant when they found hundreds of condoms clogging a waste disposal unit connecting the strip to the city sewer system.

Police say they found a massage parlor operating in the strip where female workers offered sexual services for pay.

According to KXXAN, Joseph Emery, 54, and Juan Wang, 49, were found to be the owners of the business. They have both been charged with engaging in organized criminal activity and money laundering. Emery’s bond was set at $53,000 and Wang’s at $45,000.
