ST. GEORGE — Two women did not expect to leave a St. George business parking lot in handcuffs Thursday night after they arranged meetings with men who responded to their ads for erotic massage and private dance.

“We can say that they didn’t get the business they were hoping for,” St. George Police Sgt. Johnny Heppler said.

New York residents Nichole Mary Delancey, 21, and Moyohoena Rose Wilson, 24, who have been working out of Las Vegas, decided to increase their business by advertising erotic foot massages and private dance services in the St. George area, Heppler said.

Each woman advertised on a website that specializes in attracting prostitution business in exchange for money, he said.

On Thursday, Heppler and other undercover investigators made contact with Delancey in a service station parking lot on 100 E. St. George Blvd. after arranging over the phone to meet her.

At the same time, another investigator had made contact with a different woman who was advertising services on the same website. It was later learned the two women were working together, Heppler wrote in a probable cause statement supporting Delancey’s arrest.

The women arrived in the same vehicle.

“We did not know prior that (the women) had been working together,” Heppler said.

After investigators made contact with the two women in the parking lot, the women were placed under arrest.

The women later admitted to advertising massage and private dancing services. It was determined that neither woman had a massage license registered with the Utah Department of Occupational and Professional Licensing and neither had a license to operate a business in St. George.

Wilson, who had been seen driving the vehicle into the parking lot where the meeting took place, was also found to have a suspended New York driver’s license.

Unlicensed individuals advertising massage services can cause struggles for legally licensed massage therapists, Heppler said.

“People like this who work unlicensed and advertising for this kind of business really make it hard for those who have worked hard to get into the massage business,” he said.

Wilson was booked into the Washington County Purgatory Correctional Facility. According to court documents, she has been charged with one class A misdemeanor for unlawful and unprofessional conduct for advertising herself as a massage therapist without a license; she has also been charged with one class B misdemeanor for driving with a suspended or revoked driver’s license. Wilson posted $2,500 bond and has been released from custody, according to current bookings information.

Delancey was also booked into Purgatory Correctional Facility. According to court documents, she has been charged with one class A misdemeanor for unlawful and unprofessional conduct for advertising herself as a massage therapist without a license. She posted $2,000 bond and has been released from custody, according to current bookings information.

Persons arrested or charged are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law or as otherwise decided by a trier-of-fact.

    They must not have gotten the memo. This is St. George, Utah. Duh, hello.

    “Arrest those scary dancers. We can’t have adults consenting to such dangerous activities in this town. Think of the destruction they could’ve caused this community!” Just quoted the old ladies in my neighborhood.

  • Mean Momma March 30, 2015 at 7:41 am

    Duhhhh! There is no dancing allowed in St. George! What is wrong with these hookers? Jeez, do your research first!

  • Billy Madison March 30, 2015 at 8:42 am

    Holy Cow, I’m not callin them anymore.

    Enterprising young women– when will they learn? They should have known they must pay up to the city for a licence first, before peddling their professional talents. Not knowing the law is no excuse.
    Reminds me of those Foot Loose dance party promoters a few months back.

    Really? There are men that would let them women touch their feet? Oh ya, it was cops that answered the ad,

    I love a good foot massage but I refuse to break the law by allowing women without a permit to dance in my presence.

    • NotSoFast March 30, 2015 at 5:03 pm

      They say, Laws are made to be broken. Careful now, Is it against the law to tap your foot to music if you haven’t yet applied for a permit?

      • sagemoon March 31, 2015 at 10:49 am

        Ooh, that’s a good question for the city council. In the meantime, I’m going to play it safe and just hold still when there is music playing.

    “Unlicensed individuals advertising massage services can cause struggles for legally licensed massage therapists, Heppler said.”

    Well, girls are just tryin’ to make a living. Why our local cops don’t do some traffic policing to make us all safer is beyond me… And are girls offering erotic services really competing with massage therapists? really?

  • Mike March 30, 2015 at 7:17 pm

    Why not wait a few minutes and let them talk their way into a prostitution charge? A little premature to only get them on the lack of license charges. Odd.

  • ladybugavenger March 31, 2015 at 4:10 pm

    Silly me, I thought all massage places, licensed or licensed, had back rooms for you know, back room things. Needless to say, I’ve never had a “professional” massage.
