Colorado woman, Sona Blair, arrested in connection to sex trafficking ring

A Colorado woman has been arrested in connection to a human trafficking ring involving several massage parlors.

Court documents details the arrested of Sona Blair, age 54, who was driving several women to various Asian massage parlors across the city for purposes of prostitution, Colorado State Troopers report.

Sona BlairAuthorities began tailing Blair in July, after receiving information from female employees at the Magical Massage Spa during a human trafficking investigation.

A woman arrested on prostitution charges revealed she was paid $100 a week to live in the spa. Another woman at the spa, identified by state troopers as a “cooperative,” told police that Blair was involved in “every massage parlor in Colorado Springs” and charged about $200 to transport women from Denver International Airport to Colorado Springs.

The woman had admitted to using Blair’s services in the past, but told police she had recently stopped due to high charges.

During the investigation, which involved multiple agencies, including Homeland Security and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, investigators observed Blair driving to several branches of two banks to deposit money that they believe was paid to her for transportation and placement services.

With the help of information from online classified websites, investigators said they confirmed the three spas were operating as business fronts for commercialized sex.

One advertisement for Pine Tree Therapy Spa promoted having “new girls every week” and featured pictures of woman in provocative clothing, according to court documents.

State troopers said they questioned two men leaving Yuki’s Spa in August.

Both men admitted paying for illicit sex acts at the spa.
