He was assisted by Captain Steve Johnson of the St. Clair County Sheriff's Department.  The monitor had been hooked up to a surveillance and recording system at the massage parlor and was seized as evidence after the business was raided.  MEGSI (the Metropolitan Enforcement Group of Southwestern Illinois) conducted simultaneous drug and prostitution raids at several locations in Brooklyn.  MEGSI is composed of Illinois State Police officers, United States marshals, officers from various city and county police agencies, plus other members of law enforcement.  This coordinated raid by about 20 officers targeted several individuals who had outstanding arrest warrants on file.
