DEER PARK - The Town of Babylon says that it shut down 15 illegal massage parlors today.

According to town officials, prostitutes were operating out of at least one of the businesses. They say the other parlors had building code violations.

Officials issued summonses ranging from $250 to thousands of dollars in fines. One shop owner says she had the proper permits, but was fined because her electricity wasn't working properly.

The town says that most of the businesses will be able to reopen once they've fixed the problems and paid their fines.
