A 45-year-old Langley woman has been charged with keeping a common bawdy house and living on the avails of prostitution following a raid by the Vancouver Police vice quad last week.

Danielle Boseley was arrested Friday March 18 at “Broadway Bodycare” at 1926 West Broadway Avenue, a self-styled "Health Enhancement Centre."

Thirteen women and two male customers were in the shop at the time.

Vancouver Police spokesperson Const. Lindsey Houghton said the investigation was the result of complaints from people living nearby.

"Some people in the area were complaining about the sexual noises that were coming from the business," Houghton said.

A sign on the door of Broadway Bodycare on Wednesday said the business was "closed for renovations."

Boseley, who has no previous criminal record, has been released from jail with conditions, including:

Not to attend 1926 West Broadway Avenue, Vancouver;

Not to have contact with any of her employees;

Not to be found in any place associated to prostitution, non-therapeutic massage, body rub, adult entertainment, or an escort agency.

Her next court appearance is scheduled for April 11.
