ATASCOCITA, Texas – A 54-year-old woman is accused of violating Harris County Sexually Oriented Business Regulations while running an illegal massage parlor out of a home in Atascocita, according to county officials.

Nancy Camacho was arrested Oct. 3. at a residence near Atascocita Middle School.

She's accused of providing sexual services at a home in the 7200 block of Lonesome Woods Trail.

“These type of businesses, either as a store front or in a neighborhood, have been proven to bring additional crime into the area. This one is especially troubling due to its close proximity to Atascocita Middle School and the hours of operation coinciding with the kids walking to and from school in front of the residence," Constable Mark Herman said. "We will not tolerate these types of activities in our neighborhoods and near our schools and will do all we can to ensure those who bring them in are punished to the full extent of the law. Nancy Camacho was arrested, charged with operating a massage parlor without a license and booked into the Harris County Jail. Her bond is set at $1,000 out of County Court 5.”

Neighbors alerted authorities when they noticed an unusual amount of traffic at the home, officials said.

Clients provided written statements to authorities detailing the sexual encounters and said "more than massages were occurring on their visits to her home," according to authorities.
