In June 2018, investigators were alerted to suspicious activity involving Brinkman and his business, Mark’s Leisure Massage. It was reported that Brinkman was advertising illegal massage services involving sexual acts. During the investigation, an undercover Department of Homeland Security Special Agent contacted Brinkman regarding his services and he agreed to perform illegal sexual acts on the undercover agent and a fictitious minor.
Investigators are aware that Brinkman had operated his business out of an office complex at 1530 North Boise Avenue in Loveland and more recently from his home in Loveland.
If you have information about Mark Brinkman or Mark’s Leisure Massage that may assist investigators, please call Investigator Justin Atwood at 970-498-5143.
The charges are merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until, and unless, proven guilty.
