FORT LAUDERDALE Noah Fant Jersey , Fla. (AP) — Police seized almost $200,000 in connection with a Florida massage parlor where New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft was accused of paying for sexual acts, court records released Tuesday show.Search warrants show Jupiter police found $183,000 in bank safety deposit boxes belonging to two women who authorities say owned the spa and an employee. Officers also froze numerous bank accounts belonging to Orchids of Asia Spa owners Hua Zhang and Lei Wang, but the amounts in those accounts were not released. They say they also seized the business’s surveillance equipment. The women are charged with numerous felonies involving a prostitution business, while Kraft is charged with misdemeanor solicitation. All have denied wrongdoing.A multi-jurisdiction investigation closed 10 spas between Palm Beach and Orlando and saw 300 men arrested. While no one has been charged with human trafficking, authorities have said they believe the employees were brought to the U.S. from China.The search warrants show officers began investigating the spa in late October after receiving a tip from a neighboring county’s sheriff’s office. Surveillance began Nov. 6. Officers say they observed only men entering the spa and that they would leave after 30 or 60 minutes. Some customers were pulled over for traffic violations after they left and admitted to paying for sex acts, the warrants show.On Nov. 14, a female health inspector was sent into the spa. She told officers there was evidence that the three female workers were living in the store.Officers then searched trash bins behind the spa. They say they found evidence of sexual activity.On Jan. 17, after obtaining a warrant, officers used an undescribed “tactical ruse” to get the employees outside and secretly install surveillance cameras. As officers chatted with the employees, Zhang arrived and told officers she could see their arrival on her cellphone http://www.broncosauthorizedshops.com/a ... ner-jersey , tipping them off that she had her own camera system installed, the documents show. Officers were able to find those cameras and their recorders, which were later seized.Police say Kraft, 77, first visited two days after the cameras were installed and again the next morning, shortly before he flew to Kansas City, where he saw his team defeat the Chiefs in the AFC Championship game.Investigators say they videotaped him engaging in sex acts during both visits and then handing over cash. Kraft, who is worth $6 billion, handed over a $100 bill and another bill after one visit, records show, and an undetermined amount during the other. Two weeks later, the Patriots won the Super Bowl Drew Lock Jersey , their sixth under his ownership.Kraft was charged in late February and has pleaded not guilty. Most men charged for the first time with soliciting are eligible for a diversion program where they pay a $5,000 fine, perform 100 hours of community service and attend a class where they learn about the dangers of prostitution and how it is often tied to human trafficking.Zhang’s attorney, Tama Kudman, told the South Florida Sun Sentinel that the videos will be challenged and that her client is a victim of stereotyping.“They are saying every Asian massage parlor is part of a sex trafficking ring and that’s outrageous,” Kudman told the newspaper. “They are making assumptions based on a particular story line and not taking the time to look at the particular facts about the individual defendants.” NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — New Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts learned at a basketball game just how much Sooners fans already had embraced him.The week Oklahoma announced that Hurts was transferring from Alabama, he was watching halftime festivities during the Sooners’ game against Vanderbilt. Seemingly out of nowhere, a long line of admirers developed. He smiled, posed for photos and signed autographs, seemingly unfazed by the sudden surge of attention.“I definitely appreciate it,” he said. “I’m in a new place. I’m a new face around here. It’s cool and it’s all love to embrace those guys.”Sooners fans had grown to respect Hurts from afar. The native of suburban Houston won a national title at Alabama and played for another as a starter. Last season http://www.broncosauthorizedshops.com/a ... nes-jersey , as Tua Tagovailoa’s backup, he led a dramatic rally against Georgia in the SEC Championship Game.This has all prepared him for a role that would intimidate most people — following Heisman winners Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray as Oklahoma’s quarterback.Hurts is unfazed by this, too.“I’m not your average Joe,” he said. “Kind of built for these types of situations. There’s never been really anything that’s been in my way that I couldn’t overcome or see through. I’m here. I’m going to do whatever I can to help this team in whatever way to achieve the things we want to achieve as a team.”Hurts showed he’s becoming comfortable at Oklahoma’s Spring Game on Friday night when he led the Red Team to a touchdown drive on his first possession. He threw a touchdown pass to Kennedy Brooks later in the first half and ran for a score in the second half as his squad beat the White Team 35-14.Redshirt freshman Tanner Mordecai is trying to compete with Hurts, and incoming true freshman Spencer Rattler will jump into the mix in the fall.Hurts is 6-foot-2 and 225 pounds — bigger and stronger than Mayfield and Murray. He relies on moxie to escape trouble, much like Mayfield did, and he’s an effective runner like Murray. He’s an accurate passer, but he hasn’t been forced to use his arm as often as he likely will need to in the Sooners’ system.“The last two guys we’ve had had pretty unique skill sets, too,” Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley said. “I like his skill set a lot. I wouldn’t have brought him in if I didn’t feel like it would work. I feel like at any point with a new quarterback, you’re going to get different feels with what they like and what they can do well.”Hurts, who was on the field briefly against the Sooners in last season’s playoff win by Alabama T.J. Hockenson Jersey , just wants to be the best possible version of himself.“I don’t want to get into comparisons,” he said. “Baker’s Baker, Kyler’s Kyler and I’m me. I think the objective of all of this is, yeah, everybody wants to achieve their goals, everybody wants to do those things. But right now it’s not about me. I’m stepping back from it. The biggest thing about this thing is achieving what we want as a team, getting what we want accomplished as a team.”Hurts will have plenty of firepower with him. CeeDee Lamb leads the receiving corps after grabbing 65 passes for 1,158 yards and 11 touchdowns last season. Lee Morris is back after hauling in eight scoring passes last season, and Grant Calcaterra returns after tallying six touchdown grabs.The running game should be strong, too. Brooks ran for 1,056 yards and 12 scores as a freshman last season, and Trey Sermon ran for 947 yards and 13 touchdowns.Hurts understands he’s new to Riley’s system Zach Brown Jersey , so he wants to progress quickly, yet remain patient. Riley said there are ways to adjust the system to fit a player’s skills, too.“What I think we were decent at with Kyler and Baker is you have to marry your schemes to them and find some common ground to where you’re still running your system, but you’re also tailoring it to what they do well,” Riley said. “We’ll certainly do that for Jalen and our other quarterbacks that will be here as well. I think he has an intriguing skill set that I’m excited to work with.”Hurts knows his past accomplishments alone won’t win the respect of his new teammates.What he does in their presence matters more.“A team, if you have the right leader, if you have the right guy doing what he’s supposed to do, taking care of his business, people let you lead,” he said. “It’s not mandatory of them to do that. But they’ll follow you.”
