TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — A Pensacola man accused of human trafficking owned a massage parlor in Tallahassee.

David Williams, 41, was arrested in connection with his operation of multiple Asian massage parlors in Florida, Virginia, and Pennsylvania.

The US Attorney for the Northern District of Florida announced a federal arrest warrant was executed on Williams for using interstate facilities for racketeering, money laundering conspiracy and harboring illegal aliens for commercial advantage or private financial gain.

Over a dozen search warrants were executed at the massage parlors linked to Williams, including the one called Massage in Tallahassee, which is located on North Monroe Street.

Over half a dozen seizure warrants were also executed on bank accounts linked to the allegations against Williams.

A detention hearing was held for Williams on Aug. 20 at the United States Courthouse in Pensacola.
