Massage Parlor closed amid prostitution arrests

Five suspects facing charges

Greensburg — GREENSBURG — The Greensburg Police Department (GPD) served a search warrant on Right Touch Massage Therapy Thursday afternoon and arrested multiple suspects on charges related to prostitution.

According to a GPD press release, five individuals were arrested: Jenny McMurry — a.k.a. Hui Y. Xie — 57, Rick S. Adams, 54, of Greensburg, Ryan S. Powers, 34, of Greensburg, Robert A. Uptmor, 59, of Centerville, Ohio, and Jerrold S. Grose, 56, of Cincinnati, Ohio.

McMurry faces three counts of Promoting Prostitution (Class C Felony), four counts of Prostitution (Class A Misdemeanor) and one count of Corrupt Business Influence (Class C Felony).

The remaining four suspects face a charge of Patronizing a Prostitute (Class A Misdemeanor).

The GPD press release states that the arrests resulted from a three-month investigation involving multiple departments, including the GPD, the Decatur County Prosecutor’s Office, The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Human Trafficking/Vice Unit (IMPD) and the Indiana State Police


GPD Chief Stacey Chasteen told the Daily News in a phone interview Friday morning that a second female suspect, who also worked at the business, is currently wanted and at large.

“We’re not sure where this individual is,” Chasteen said, “but we have her picture and name and are looking for her. As the case stands, she’s the only other suspect charged with prostitution, but we think she might lead us to other suspects.”

The chief further explained that the case started with the IMPD investigating massage parlors in Indianapolis.

“Through an ongoing investigation, they received intelligence regarding a massage parlor in Shelbyville,” Chasteen explained. “Their subsequent investigation of that establishment led to intelligence regarding Right Touch, and that’s how we opened our investigation.”

Chasteen added that a warrant on the Shelbyville establishment was also served Thursday afternoon simultaneously with the Right Touch warrant.

“This is an ongoing case,” she said. “So we don’t know, exactly, where the evidence might lead, or what else we might uncover, but we’ve put freeze orders on bank accounts and are currently executing search warrants on safety deposit boxes.”

More arrests are expected in the case.

“This operation went very well, and we greatly appreciate the IMPD’s and ISP’s assistance,” Chasteen said. “These arrests represent the culmination of a lot of hours by our department. All the hard work paid off in a big way yesterday; everything went very smoothly and efficiently, and we’re quite pleased with the results.”
