GRAND JUNCTION — Police and federal agents have raided four massage businesses in Grand Junction and arrested one person.

The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel reports (http://tinyurl.com/negmthp ) the raids occurred Tuesday.

In a news release, officials say they suspect the businesses might be involved in prostitution and human trafficking. The release says some women might be moved from city to city against their will.

A spokesman for the U.S. attorney's office says one man was arrested on suspicion of false use of a Social Security number.

Federal agencies involved in the raids include the Department of Homeland Security and the Internal Revenue Service.

In 2008, federal agents shut down a Grand Junction massage business, and the owner pleaded guilty to pimping and tax evasion. She was sentenced to probation.
