Maria G. Favela, 35, of Atlanta, and Mateo Martinez Hernandez, 34, of Brookhaven, were arrested May 4, during an investigation for suspected prostitution at the Himalayan Salt Therapy located at 2859 Buford Highway.

After receiving several complaints of possible prostitution at the establishment, police launched an undercover investigation that lasted several months. According to a press release, Favela was charged with prostitution. Hernandez was arrested and charged with keeping a place of prostitution.

A search warrant of the business revealed the establishment was not equipped to provide professional massage or salt therapy services, police said.
