SAN MARCOS, Texas — A 41-year-old Austin woman has been arrested after authorities found several workers were being trafficked at a San Marcos spa.
According to a press release from the Hays County Sheriff's Office, deputies – along with members of the anti-trafficking unit with the Texas Department of Licensing and Registration and refugee advocates – have been investigating a complaint about the Riverbend Spa located at 1904 Old Ranch Road 12 in San Marcos.
