Officers with the Honolulu Police Department's Narcotics/Vice Division, Honolulu Prosecutor's office and the Homeland Security Investigations division served search warrants Monday morning at a suspected massage parlor in Kakaako. When no one answered the door at Ume Spa at 320 Ward Avenue, HPD officers used a battering ram to smash the door open.
