A 58-year-old man was arrested Monday after an eight-month investigation by the Edmonton Police Service Vice Section.

The man was allegedly a central figure in a prostitution ring involving massage parlours within Edmonton, police said.

The two massage parlours were located at 150 Street and 118 Avenue, and 95 Street and 76 Avenue.

Complaints from neighbours about suspicious activity prompted the police investigation.

During the investigation, six women were removed from the businesses and returned to the Toronto area.

Dennis Fitzpatrick Huggins is facing 13 charges related to keeping a bawdy house, living off the avails of prostitution and proceeds of crime.
