MCLENNAN COUNTY, TX (KXXV) -

The owner of a Central Texas barbeque restaurant and a former sheriff's deputy were arrested Wednesday. 

Daniel Henderson, the owner of Uncle Dan's BBQ Ribhouse, was arrested for prostitution. Stephen Johnson, a former deputy, was also arrested and charged with prostitution.

Johnson had resigned from the McLennan County Sheriff's Office late last year after a video showed Johnson at a massage parlor at the center of an undercover sex sting. 

Detectives began investigating a massage parlor for possible prostitution and human trafficking in October of 2017.   

In December, a search warrant was issued for the parlor and detectives found numerous items of evidence including video cameras hidden within the walls of the business. Each clock had a microSD card for storing videos, the arrest affidavit said. 

Detectives reviewed the videos and saw numerous acts of prostitution at the end of the massages.

The affidavit said on Sept. 24, Henderson paid $60 for an hour-long massage and $40 to receive a sex act at this establishment. 

The affidavit said Johnson paid for the same acts on Oct. 16. 

The McLennan County Jail said that Henderson and Johnson had both $1,000 bonds and had bonded out Wednesday evening. 

Chief Deputy David Kilcrease said that the arrests were tied to the John Suppression Sting campaign. Kilcrease said that more arrests were anticipated in the upcoming weeks. 

No other details were released.
