Scarsdale couple busted for allegedly running sex ring out of massage parlors
A Scarsdale couple is accused of running a $1 million a year prostitution ring.
Fernando Zeolla, 39 and his wife Grace, 46, allegedly ran prostitution houses out of three of their massage parlors. The Delrio Therapy Brazilian and Relaxing Touch in Yonkers, and the Delrio Beauty in Mamaroneck are the three businesses where authorities believe the couple ran a sex ring.
Investigators from the district attorney's office seized thousands of cards, which they say had listed names of the customers and the sexual acts they preferred. Large sums of money were also found at the locations.
According to the district attorney, the Zeolla's advertised in the sports section of the Journal News and may have brought in more than $20,000 a week from the operation. The DA says most of the girls that worked for the couple were from different parts of South America and spoke very little English.
The couple is charged with promoting prostitution. If convicted, the couple faces up to seven years in prison.
