Ulises Ruiz was booked and released from the Pima County jail on March 7, after being indicted on multiple felonies relating to the alleged operation of a massage parlor ring in Tucson.

Ruiz is facing charges of illegal control of an enterprise, keeping a house of prostitution, receiving the earnings of a prostitute and money laundering.

Police had been investigating the businesses since November 2011, after receiving complaints from neighbors about suspected illegal activities at several residences associated with the Ruiz and his girlfriend, Clarissa Lopez. Lopez has been indicted on related charges.
