Howell Police Announce Prostitution Investigation Results

Several sites investigated by local department

The recently investigated reports of prostitution at various locations around town. On Friday morning the department released the results of that investigation. 

Detective Sgt. Eileen Dodd said that on June 21 an unlicensed massage and prostitution business was closed down in the Howell Office Plaza at 4517 Route 9 North. Dodd said the owners of the company rented space in the complex and advertised on websites and in chat rooms.

She added they did not have a name on the business or a certificate of occupancy and were shut down by the Howell Police Department and Howell Code Enforcement Office. Madina Kurbanova, 31, of Philadelphia and Elvira Carbocci, 40, of Brooklyn were issued ordinance violations for operating without a massage license.

On July 12 Jennifer Taylor, 40, of Ruffian Way was arrested for prostitution. Dodd said Taylor advertised online "in adult entertainment and erotic massage classified ad" posts. She was released on a summons and was also issued ordinance violations for operating without a massage license. Dodd said she is still operating her business and there are additional charges pending against her and her landlord 49-year-old Reginald Bigley.

On July 27 Urban Oasis in the Cherrytree Plaza at 2350 Route 9 South was investigated by the department and was identified as a massage/prostitution business. While a search warrant was executed Dodd said no arrests were made as the identity of the employees could not be determined. She said the business was closed and will not re-open.

Interesting that Jennifer Taylor's maiden name is Urban and the other prostitution business is "Urban" Oasis, If you google Jennifer Taylor's phone numbers 7326641573 and 7326851079, you can see that she's been prostituting since early 2011. Glad to see she's being put out of business. She was charged with an assault with a deadly weapon in Broward County Florida (sometime between 2000 and 2005), she needs to be put away.

That's crazy. I know someone who went to sunny's on route 9 and was offered illegal services. I wonder if they'll close as well.
