PINELLAS PARK – Pinellas Park Police charged a St. Petersburg woman with prostitution and unlicensed practice of health care profession May 27.
Police received reports of prostitution and unlicensed massage taking place at Executive Nineteen, 6541 44th St. N. in Pinellas Park in April. An investigation concluded with the arrest of Teresa Duckett Wallace, 41.
According to a police report, “Wallace did commit these offenses in the presence of detectives and admitted to the same.”
The police report also said that the city of Pinellas Park had issued a Business Tax Receipt to Wayne Replogle whose application stated that the business was “Aromatherapy.”
“The observations made by detectives lent no credibility to that fact, and it was obvious based on their investigation that the business was being used for prostitution,” the report continued.
Executive Nineteen was advertised on Backpage.com and Creative Loafing offering “Seductive Ladies” for a “Flat Fee.”
Police gave examples of the advertisements, including, “Meet the sexy ladies of Executive Nineteen. Located in Pinellas Park close to all major highways and interstates. We offer a relaxing environment with nice furnishings. We strive to make your time with us memorable and exciting. We have exotic redheads, blondes and brunettes available 6 days a week to meet YOUR needs!”
The front page of the business’s website, www.executive19.com shows photos for five women with no mention of aromatherapy.
Police said that Replogle denied any knowledge of what took place in the business and said that he was asked to get a BTR for the girls. He said that his presence was to serve as a deterrent to visitors at the business, and told the girls not to do anything they didn’t want to do.
Wayne Replogle was issued a notice of revocation of his BTR by the city.
Wallace was booked into the Pinellas County. Bond was set at $2,250.
