    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A Jacksonville massage parlor and its owner had their licenses revoked by the Florida Department of Health. 

    In new documents filed Monday, the state of Florida imposed penalties on the Florida Oasis Massage and Spa and the owner, 49-year-old Hong Sun. 

    Before it was shut down, Florida Oasis Massage and Spa operated inside a unit at Southside business park on Fortune Parkway.

    In 2016, the massage parlor was busted for prostitution in an undercover sting.

    The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said Sun offered to perform a sex act on the officer who posed as a client. 

    According to the report, Sun “removed her top” and exposed herself. She was arrested and charged with offering prostitution. 

    Kara Nichols, who worked next door to the massage parlor, said she suspected something shady was going on behind closed doors.

    “Men would be their customers. There were no women customers,” Nichols said.

    In addition to losing her license, Sun must pay more than $2,800 in fines and fees.
